For those of you reading from beyond New Zealand, the Maori word “Hui” means a gathering.
Yesterday the local Tuis flocked to the sugar water feeder. It was something of a competition to see how many could perch on the feeder and gain access to the sugar water.
I think this photo shows the maximum number who had artfully arranged themselves on the structure.
Others were on the fence or in the nearby Magnolia tree awaiting a space to open up!
