Title
Tui on Harakeke
Description
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 and also disperse the seeds of trees with medium sized fruits.
