Today’s postal is from New Zealand, with one of the native bird Tūī.

“Tūī can be found throughout whole New Zealand, they live in native forests, bush reserves, and bush remnants. These attractive birds can often be heard singing their beautiful melodies before they are spotted. You will recognise them by their distinctive white tuft under their throat. They are important pollinators of many native trees and will fly large distances, especially during winter for their favourite foods. They feed mainly on nectar from flowers of native plants such as kōwhai, puriri, rewarewa, kahikatea, pohutukawa, rātā and flax. Occasionally they will eat insects too.” (details from Departments of Conservation)
