Birds of the Doubtful Valley - Bellbird or korimako
Captain Cook described the Korimako or Bellbird as sounding, ‘Like small bells exquisitely tuned.’ While Māori compare great singers or orators to the bird, saying, ‘He rite ki te kòpara e kō nei I te ata,’ (just like a bellbird singing at dawn). As nectar-feeders korimako are important pollinators of native mistletoe, fuchsia and kowhai.
