stickybeak (ˈstɪkɪˌbiːk ) (Australian and New Zealand)(informal). noun
1. an inquisitive person
2. An act of looking at or watching something, especially something which does not directly concern the one looking.
Wherever you are in the world, there are interesting animals and plants to be seen. We love to have a good old stickybeak at what’s around and what it’s up to. This time we’re in Kaikoura, on New Zealand’s South Island, best known for its whales, dolphins and albatrosses. We’ll be taking a close look at the birds and beasts of the area, as well as further afield.
Stickybeak began in Sydney, a city with fascinating creatures around every corner. Our favourites were the shorebirds, which have stickier beaks than most. Now we’re in NZ we’ll have a whole new range of wildlife to explore, including a few very special shorebirds. One of these we chose to be our new Stickybeak logo – the South Island Pied Oystercatcher, or SIPO for short.
