The tūī has an exceptional vocal range, from harsh squawks, clicks and whirrs to bell-like melodies. Tūī mimic other birds and various sounds from their environment. Part of their range is beyond human hearing, so in the middle of a song they can seem to fall suddenly silent. Māori sometimes trained tūī to talk, and some chiefs taught their caged birds complex speeches. To help them speak clearly, their brush-tipped tongues were trimmed. Tūī are dark iridescent green with purple and azure highlights. They have two tufted white feathers under the chin, inspiring their other name, parson bird.

I have taken 6 of my original native bird collages, created digital versions and printed them onto plywood.

These prints of native NZ birds are printed with solvent free UV curable non-fading Osé ink onto 9mm 5-ply made from sustainable A-grade pine grown in NZ. This is cut to size (230x230mm) and hand sanded to a smooth finish. They are produced in small print runs and are all unique in wood grain. Artist's signature and print edition number is hand written on the back.

Enjoy as a one-off piece or combine with other prints to make a colorful, fun and natural statement on any wall.
