Native Bird

Bryan Walpert Native Bird

In his third poetry collection, Bryan Walpert, who arrived in New Zealand in 2004, writes of what it’s been like to be an observer or ‘birdwatcher’ in a land whose physical and cultural geographies he is still learning to name. With precision and insight, Bryan weaves meditations on the life and songs of birds into his observations on living as a new settler in a wind-charged Manawatu. Working at the shifting borders of homes and hearts, prose and poetry, call and song, this is an arresting collection that speaks to us all.
