I don't think birds hibernate at all. Their solution to seasonal challenge is to migrate, and the earliest arriving Godwitsto NZ fly non-stop the 11 000 km from Siberia to NZ, arriving in September. The younger birds follow a 3500 km longer path through Asia and Australia to arrive in Oct - Dec.

The Royal Spoonbill, an Australian immigrant has recently colonized in NZ, and some of the southern flocks migrate to the North Island for their winter.

It is known that Tui and bellbird stage a winter migration to regions where there are supplies of winter nectar, such as eucalyptus.

As a footnote, the Emperor Penguin would be the bird most likely to benefit from hibernation, for it spends over two months in the middle of the Antarctic winter without a feed, whilst waiting for the female to return from her journey at sea. But it hatches the chick in the middle of winter, so hibernation is out of the question, for the chick must be kept warm on its father's feet, and by a bare-ish brood patch on his tummy.
