Wow! a tui in a tree.When other tuis come to the blossom tree the tui who lives there, chases the other tuis away.He is greedy because he eats so much nectar.The tui likes the nectar from the blossom flowers.He puts his long pointy beak in the blossom flowers and sucks up the yummy honey.Sometimes he flips upside down to get the nectar because the blossom is hanging underneath the branch.
