Habitat: Common to forests as well as semi-rural parks and gardens these little birds are instantly recognisable by their flitting darting flight. They will often follow a tramper or hunter through the bush feeding of the disturbed insects left in the person's wake.
They lay eggs in a cup shaped nest of moss and twigs. Their adaptation to human invasion has seen them remain with a successful and steady population.
A 60 page colouring book of New Zealand Birds that aims to educate the child on conservation issues while enjoying the fun of colouring. The drawings are artistically rendered allowing for simple colouring methods or for those more advanced to attempt a true artwork quality image. Each bird has its habitat described with food sources, threats and more. There is also information on simple everyday things you can do to be a conservationist.
This colouring book was a gift for a friend who was travelling to New Zealand. Something to while away the hours on the long flight. It was well received. Bluedaisy - Amazon Review
