Saddleback Song (Charles & Janine Williams)

Saddleback Song (Charles & Janine Williams)

A mural in Poynton Terrace by Charles and Janine Williams, created in the 2014 All Fresco Festival (K-road Business Association). This bird is native to New Zealand, and major conservation efforts have taken place to bring its conservation status from ‘rare and endangered’ to ‘at risk – recovering’.

You can hear the song of North Island and South Island saddlebacks here (search for “hear the song”).
