Operation I'oi

I’oi is a medium sized bird (about 21cm), slightly smaller than the Myna. The colour of the adult is dull dark grey-brown with a pale belly and white feathers under the tail, and yellow eyes. Unlike the adult, young I’oi have brown eyes and no white feathering under the tail. A bird count
programme is underway to determine numbers on Rarotonga and TIS is inviting senior school
students to participate in this interesting project. If you know of 14-18yr olds in the Cook Islands who would like to be part of this project please phone Ana on 21144 or email
