The bellbird is a musical wonder. It produces the sound of a thousand tiny whistles and flutes, which Captain Cook described as sounding like “small bells exquisitely tuned”. And they know it, as they often sing solo during the day.

The korimako/bellbird makes their beautiful voices heard all throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. The star of the dawn chorus, their song sounds like bells chiming – or like R2D2. #VoteKorimako #TeamKorimako #VoteBellbird #TeamBellbird
