A stunning photo of a Tui

I spotted this stunning photo of a Tui on my Facebook news feed today. It is not my photo.

The link for it is here.

Top or tail they are very beautiful birds.

    Gorgeous. I was watching a rerun of Birdland the other night and heard how clever the Tui is at imitating the human voice. I wondered if you might be encouraging your Tui to talk 🙂

      I love Tuis but you can tell that from all my blogging about them:-) I don’t see many crows or ravens here but we do have some birds of that type in New Zealand.

      We do see Magpies which are black and white and a larger bird than a Tui.

        We see fewer magpies here now too. I think there was a suspicion that the Tui had driven them away but it may be that many of the trees they liked to nest in have been cut down or have been felled by the storms of the past wee while.
