In some trouble

Also known as the bush canary, mōhua live in fast-moving, noisy flocks. Based high in the canopy, they bring the South Island beech forest alive with their loud, melodious calls. They feed among the branches by picking off the moss and lichen to expose their favourite prey: beetles, caterpillars, spiders, and moths.
