Title
Tui on Harakeke Princess Bay (1 of 1)
Description
Tui spoilt for choice with the abundance of Harakeke pollen on the South Coast of Wellington. Tui’s preferred diet is nectar and honeydew, and they will often shift to, or commute more than 10 km daily to good nectar sources such as Kowhai, Flax, Rata, Pohutukawa, Gums and Banksias. In breeding season, Tui supplement their nectar diet with Cicadas and Stick insects. They play an important role in the dynamics of NZ forests as they are one of the most common pollinators of flowering plants.
