THE TUI: New Zealand Songbird

The Tui is a much loved native bird of New Zealand, admired for its beauty and the great range and viability of its song.  Sometimes called the Parson bird because of its characteristic white tuft at the throat, the Tui is a frequent visitor to suburban gardens particularly where flavoured nectar of fruit bearing trees grow in profusion.  It is the first bird to sing in the morning and the last to finish at night.  Its voice varies with locality and season but typically contains pure bell-like notes, harsher clonks, rattles, chuckles and clicks and even quiet squeaks.

Design Reverse: The Tui was designed by Maurice Conly and modelled by Robert Elderton.  Design Obverse: Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael D Maklouf.
