Auckland Domain - Tui - the white tuft on it's chest prompted English settlers to call it the Parson Bird

I think it's quite hard to photograph a tui, especially in the city. I hope some of my kiwi friends can prove me wrong.

As a special treat use the link below. Close your eyes and imagine you are in a dark heavily wooded forest waiting for the call of the Tui to break the still morning air
