About the Tui
The tui is a member of the honey eaters, possessing a brush tipped tongue to collect nectar from flax etc. It also feeds on insects and defends it's territory aggressively. The tui is a noisy bird in flight and in song. It has striking iconic melodies mixed with croaks squeaks and all manner of sounds. It is also a clever mimic of other bird calls. The tui appears black but, on close inspection, is various iridescent greens with a reddish brown back topped with a white flecked shawl. Most characteristic are two white tufts on its throat that earned it the name the parson bird.
