Tui Large monochrome


The Tui is a classic mischief maker in Aotearoa, with an enormous vocal range and a knack for mimicry (which can be annoying when they delight in repeating mobile phone ring tones). Their aerial acrobatics always provide a joyful display, with rapid wing movements generating fast flight paths in and around trees and other objects.
