Bellbird, Hihi, Saddleback & Tui

Bellbird, Hihi, Saddleback & Tui

New Zealand nature photography, a collection of our native song birds including: bellbird (korimako), hihi (or stitchbird), saddleback (tieke) and tui. I have always loved the sound of the bellbird and tui singing. There calls are deeply resonant and very nostalgic. When I lived overseas, it was the calls of these birds that I missed the most when I was out in the forests. The hihi and saddleback also have unique calls but sadly we only get to here these now in protected pest free sanctuaries.

These images are all available printed on canvas or in high definition colour on aluminium or as stock photos in jpeg format.
