The Hihi (Notiomystis cinctaor) or “New Zealand Stitch Bird” is one of NZ’s rarest native birds. According to the Zealandia website to Māori, ‘hihi’ was a term used for the healing rays of sunlight. The shoulders of the male hihi would light up in a burst of yellow as these birds darted through the trees and were said to be carriers of the sun - capturing the healing rays and spreading light through the forest.
