The Yellowhead is a small bird that early settlers called the bush canary because of its colour and loud, melodious song. Today it often goes by its Maori name Mahua.
Once abundant in nature, its beautiful song used to boom through New Zealand's native forests. Unfortunately, deforestation and the introduction of predators has meant these beautiful birds are now only found in a few isolated beech forests.
We usually have these colours in stock but please check before making a special trip. There is a much wider range of colours available to order which takes approx 3-6 weeks depending on the time of year.
