The tui, like the bellbird, is one of NZ's most well-known and well-loved native birds. His black feathers may look somber in the shade, but in the sunlight they display a beautiful metallic blue-green sheen. The white feathers under its throat explain the tui's other name, parson bird.

  1. The light becoming shadow near the bird’s throat gives this picture an amazing relief effect. Nice job!

    Hope everything is going good for you.
