A little bit about bell birds:


Most New Zealanders can easily recognise the bellbird by its
melodious song, which Captain
Cook described as sounding
Ďlike small bells exquisitely tunedí.

Well camouflaged, the bellbird is usually heard before it is seen. Females are dull olive-brown, with a slight blue sheen on the head and a pale yellow cheek stripe. Males are olive green, with a purplish head and black outer wing and tail feathers.
