Today, just now we saw a tui in the kowhai tree right outside our classroom window. The kowhai tree has a lot of blossoms now - bright yellow flowers. The Tui was probably in the kowhai tree because it is spring and they like sucking the flowers. They suck the flowers to steal the nectar from inside the flowers. They suck it up their beak like a straw. Leila wonders do Tui eat anything else? We are going to keep an eye on the kowhai tree and try and take a photo of the tui - it flies away very fast each time we try! 6.9.16 10:50.
