Tūī atop a flowering kōwhai tree (Sophora microphylla). The tūī is one of the most iconic songsters of Aotearoa and may be seen alighting on the flowering trees of the spring months in large groups. Kōwhai may be considered the ‘national tree’ and all of the 8 recognised species are endemic (not found elsewhere) and in the genus Sophora, of which S. microphylla is the most prolific. It’s bright golden yellow flowers hang in clusters their winged petals drooping amongst the leaves each bearing 30-50 leaflets.

This print is based on a detail of a painting exhibited in the recent exhibition 'A Few' - the third installment in an ongoing series of natural history illustrations depicting native and resident species of Aotearoa, New Zealand - by Erin Forsyth.
