Abstract

[First paragraph...]
The Kermadec Group lies about 1000 km northeast of North Island at 29º 15'S, 178º 00'W in the New Zealand archipelago. Its few land birds are all species characteristic of New Zealand: for example, the tui Prosthemadera novaeseelandiae (Cheeseman 1891, Sorensen 1964). Only the red-crowned parakeet is distinguished from its New Zealand counterpart, and then only at the subspecific level as Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae cyanurus (Higgins 1999).
