New Zealand: Tūī

with 77 comments

Tui Bird on Dead Tree 4108

One of New Zealand’s best-known native birds is the tūī, Prosthermadera novaeseelandiae. I photographed this one on February 8th on the island of Tiritiri Matangi, which has been turned into a wildlife sanctuary and nature preserve.

For more information about the tūī you can check out New Zealand Birds and the similarly named but independent site New Zealand Birds Online.
