Iv'e A Lace Collar & No Pink Tights!!! - Tui - NZ by 


The tui (Prosthemadera novaeseelandiae) is an endemic passerine bird of New Zealand. It is one of the largest members of the diverse honeyeater family. The name tui is from the Maori language name tūī and is the species’ formal common name. The plural is tuis, or tui following Māori usage. The English name, Parson Bird, has fallen into disuse but came about because at first glance the bird appears completely black except for a small tuft of white feathers at its neck and a small white wing patch, causing it to resemble a parson in clerical attire.

Our first Tui at Tranquillity, and we are now at day three and he is still with us… He would be even more amazing in sunshine… but alas… we have had plenty of rain… They truly have the most amazing plumage, especially around the collar…They are so beautifully dressed.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
