A Tui (Prosthermadera novaeseelandiae) specimen mounted sitting on a branch. The specimen is boxed in a black wooden container with a Perspex front.
The Tui is an endemic bird to New Zealand. They are fairly common in forest and suburban areas. They are aggressive birds and will defend flowering trees. They eat nectar and honeydew but depending on the season will also eat fruits. They are important pollinators for many native plants.
