Albino Tui with Manuka
The Tui is an enigmatic native bird of New Zealand, an adored bush and garden visitor and skillful mimic of song. Lover of nectar which it collects with its long white feathered tongue, often seen with nose dusted heavily with fertile pollen. Usually a deep iridescent black and turquoise, with radiant ruffs of white feathers under the chin, and regal collar of white crescents around the neck; the rare albino Tui is occasionally sighted, who’s ghostly apparition ignites a feeling that you‘ve just been allowed a glimpse into a secret natural world.
Here glowing, perched in the coarse branches of the Manuka tree, known for the rich honey produced by the bees who frequent its delicate flowers. Curious, watchful and intelligent.
