FOR THE TUI’S BIRDSONG PLEASE FOLLOW ARTWHIZ47’s LINK ON HER COMMENT BELOW.
This Tui, one of New Zealand’s finest songbirds is the undisputed King of part of the forest bordering our garden in Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
This Gent and his Wife rule their patch and no other bird will dispute this !
It is approaching the time when these Tui’s will be nesting and their tree will be a definite ’ No Go ’ zone until their chicks have left the nest. The male has started to use the new feeding station I have provided for all the birds. He doesn’t just drink from the sugar water, yesterday he was seen eating the half apple. It is lovely to hear the two of them singing to each other as their tree is only a few metres from our back deck.
