Wacky Wednesday – the New Zealand Tui

The craziest bird sometimes is the Tui bird, they are smart, aggressive and they are mimics. They have beautiful melodious song and love nectar.

You go to photograph them in spring and they are busy playing musical chairs. They fly over head like a puffing bellows. They can be very noisy. 

They shine out like a New Zealand beckon but our National Bird is the night flightless bird,, the Kiwi…I have never seen one except the zoo and then not very well.

The Tui, is a real wacky bird…….
