Voting is now closed. By the way, due to John Oliver’s quest to select the Pūteketeke as the Bird of the Century, there was an unprecedented voting volume this year.
I find the outside quest to push the vote in favour of one particular bird to be a bit obnoxious, really. They could have done just as much of a comedy bit by hyping up the competition in general and encouraging people to vote for cool birds.
The Maori (the indigenous people of Aotearoa/New Zealand) had a name for Queen Elizabeth: Te Kōtuku: “the White Bird”
Those Maori are just so sassy!!
The gammons are probably complaining that it is racist.
