Tui & Habitat Double Sided Puzzle (2 puzzles in 1)
Below information is printed on the back of the tray for your reference:
Tui are unique to Aotearoa/NZ and belong to the honeyeater family which mean they feed mainly on nectar from our native flowers. The plumage of the Tui can look black from certain angles and in dull light but in the sunshine the feathers positively sparkle with green, purple and bronze iridescent sheens. Tui contribute a valuable role in the pollination of many native trees and plants.
Tui are found in native forests, bush reserves and bush remnants. They are adaptable birds, and can also be found in suburban areas, particularly in winter if there is a flowering gum about. These attractive birds can often be heard singing their beautiful melodies long before they are spotted. The Tui are important pollinators and feed mainly on nectar from flowers of native plants such as Kowhai, Puriri, Rewarewa, Kahikatea, Pohutukawa, Rata and Flax. Occasionally they will eat insects too. Tui will live where there is a balance of ground cover, shrubs and trees. They are quite aggressive, and will chase other Tui and other species away from good food sources.
