Artist's Description

The lofty peaks of Fiordland are hugged by forests, rivers, small lakes and vegetation. This is the home to many small forest birds, the friendly South Island Robin, Bell birds, Riflemen, Tom tits, Fantails and a small population of Yellow Heads, Fernbrids, the Kiwi and many more.. I was so fortunate to meet the little female Tom tit for a brief moment before a Helicopter broke the natural sounds of the otherwise peaceful environment sending her deep into the forest. I was so excited to meet her, another to add to my South Island bird project…

A short youtube clip on our day trip to Fiordland National Park

There are five species of this bird, each restricted to an island and its outlying islands; North Island tomtit, toitoi, South Island tomtit, macrocephala, Chatham Island tomtit, chathamensis, Snares Island tomtit, dannefaerdi, and Auckland Island tomtit, marrineri. The Tomtit is mostly a insectivore, feeding on small invertebrates such as beetles, caterpillars, spiders, moths, weta, earthworms and flies. Fruit is taken during the winter and autumn. Most subspecies feed in vegetation, waiting on a perch and watching for prey. Insects are also gleaned from branches and leaves. The Snares subspecies feeds on the ground as well, in a similar fashion to the New Zealand Robin. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Fiordland South Island New Zealand Feb. 2012
