Tui

$40.00

The boisterous tui are the largest and best known of New Zealand’s honeyeaters. They have distinctive white throat tufts, whirring flight sounds, and tuneful melodies intermixed with coughs, groans and rasps. They play an important role in pollinating flowers and dispersing seeds.

For your Bang’n tui you have the choice of traditional, koru, or pohutukawa inlay.

Your Bang’n tui is designed and made in New Zealand. Constructed from weathering steel, your tui will weather naturally, and settle into your landscape over time – forming a beautiful rusty patina.

Dimensions:

  • Head to Tail – 270mm
  • Head to Branch – 175mm
  • Branch – 300mm

Description

New Zealand has been a geographically isolated island nation for many millions of years. This isolation, and a lack of native land mammals, lead to the evolution of the unique array of bird species that call New Zealand home. Many of these species have suffered from the introduction of mammalian predators, such as stoats, rats, possums and cats.

Your purchase of a Bang’n bird helps to ensure that the native species of New Zealand stay in the forefront of our minds, in all regions of New Zealand. As you enjoy your Bang’n bird settling into your landscape, spend some time reflecting on what you might be able to do to ensure that our surviving species can flourish as they once did.
