Kakariki spotting by the upper dam at Zealandia requires a lot of concentration - the birds are the exact same green as the foliage!

The native passionfruit / kohia is an important climber in Putaringamotu / Riccarton Bush. Its orange fruit; which are very visible at this time of year; are important food for native birds. It is easily recognised by its dark green glossy leaves climbing into the canopy above. #nativefruit #nznative #autumnfruit #biodiversity

The beginnings of a new artwork! Who out there loves fantails?? I have one outside my studio window that visits me every few days and it's so inquisitive and cute! 😍😍 This incredible image was photographed by @omakiwi (p.s. I should be doing a Tui artwork right now... But have really struggled to find the perfect pictures to work from. Any bird photographers out there have some epic full body Tui photos that you wouldn't mind having drawn? .. DM me ❤️)

I'm fond of the fuzzy butthole effect of this yet to open NZ daisy.

SI Robin / Toutouwai
Petroica australis australis
Endemic, conservation status: At Risk, Declining, Conservation Dependent, with expected decline of 10-50%.
Care for juveniles is split in an interesting way with SI robins. If there is one fledgling, the male will feed it while the female prepares for a new clutch. If there are two fledglings, one parent will care for one chick each. If there are three fledglings, the male parent will care for two and the female will feed the third.

A chirpy wee Hihi (Stitchbird)! These birds are the only ones in the world known to mate face to face 🐦 🙊 and have a very distinctive ‘stitch’ call that is loud and quick. They are close relatives of the extinct Huia and can be seen at @visit_zealandia ! One of my favourite endemic birds 🦅 #birdseries
