Tūī (large) – New Zealand bird series one
The Tūī is an endemic passerine bird of New Zealand. It is one of the largest members of the diverse honeyeater family. The name Tūī is from the Maori language and is the species’ formal common name. The early European colonists called it the Parson Bird.
Tūīs are found through much of New Zealand, particularly the North Island, the west and south coasts of the South Island, Stewart Island/Rakiura and the Chatham Islands where an endangered sub-species particular to these islands exists. Other populations live on Raoul Island in the Kermadecs, and in the Auckland Islands (where, with the New Zealand Bellbird, it is the most southerly species of honeyeater). Populations have declined considerably since European settlement, mainly as a result of widespread habitat destruction and predation by mammalian invasive species.
