This page kept a log of some of the rarities that turned up here in New Zealand, most of which we have been and seen, during the early days of Wrybill Birding Tours, NZ.  However, with the advent of BirdingNZ.net, much of this has become redundant, and so for information and photos of specific rarities you are probably better to search there.  However, below is a useful resource of some of the rarities that turned up in the early days, with information and images.

Some of the links below will take you to our Trip Reports section, others will open a page dedicated to that rarity. All pages contain photos of the rarity, if you are interested in purchasing or using these photos for any purposes (personal records, web pages, rare bird reports, etc.), then please contact Brent first. Check the Trip Reports section for other rarities which were not photographed and therefore do not appear in the log below.
