Tui – Native to New Zealand. It has a prominent white tuft at the throat and white patch on wing, middle of the back dark brown, otherwise black with variable metallic sheen. The bird song is beautiful and sometimes mistaken for a Bellbird. Its wings make a loud whirring noise especially when taking flight.
The Tui in this photo has pollen on its beak from feeding on the nectar from the flax flower.
