Yellow-Browed Tui

Photo; Kennedy Spiers

This iconic New Zealand bird is always a pleasure to photograph. This young bird is yet to develop the throat tuft and iridescent blue-green feathers that we instantly recognise in an adult and its yellowed forehead reminds us of the bird’s important role as a pollinator of many native plants.
