One of the recent additions to New Zealand's avifauna is the tauhou (Zosterops lateralis); also variously known as the silvereye or waxeye. It's thought that a storm blew a flock over from Australia around 1856. The birds have since naturalised and eat small insects, fruit and nectar. Their tongue has a small brush at the end to sip nectar.

We have some birds visiting our garden at the moment and I took these shots over the weekend.
