Tui 30cm (120g)
Tui are everywhere in Omokoroa. They love feeding in the Banksia trees, Kowhai and flax bushes. These birds are found only in New Zealand and both sexes are alike. Colouring is an iridescent greeny-blue which make the two white throat tufts stand out. Their song has rich melodic notes often repeated.
To encourage Tui to your garden, a bowl of sugar water in a suitable safe spot will do the trick.
