Tauhou – These little birds were self-introduced to New Zealand in the 1800s and thus are classified as native! The Māori name ‘tauhou’ means “stranger” or “new arrival”. Tauhou are olive green with a distinctive white ring around their eyes, hence the common name, ‘silvereye’. They mainly eat fruit, insects and nectar. Silvereyes are beneficial in that they help keep the caterpillars of codling moths to low levels, however are known to harm crops by pecking at orchard fruit such as grapes and apricots. Silvereyes especially like man-made bird feeders so you can attract them to your garden using lard and seeds. Find out more at
