Stitchbird / hihi - A4 print

Listing image #568960
Hihi – One of New Zealand’s rarest birds! Stitchbirds are only found on Little Barrier, Tiritiri Matangi, and Kapiti Islands, as well as at a few mainland wildlife sanctuaries. They were once found across the North Island, however suffered population decline through disease, introduced predators, habitat loss and specimen collection for museums. Male hihi are much more colourful than females who are mainly brown. Males assert their dominance by puffing up the white feathers on the side of their heads called ‘ear tufts’. Stitchbirds feed on a mixture of nectar, fruit, and insects. They make nests in cavities of native trees and the female looks after three to five small white eggs. Head to to find out more and to see how conservation workers are helping to increase the hihi population!
