New Zealand Gannet by carterr New Zealand Gannet by carterr
* wingspan up to 180 cm
* overall length 90 cm
* a single egg is laid around September/October November
* incubation time about 44 days
* chicks stay in the colony until February/March
* the birds then migrate to Australia, returning after 2-6 years
* it is said that (after weeks of furious flapping of wings on land) the first flight of the juvenile birds takes them to their destination more than 2000 km away.
