Tui The Tui is the one endemic bird to have survived and even thrived in the presence of humans on these islands. They have entered our national consciousness like no other New Zealand bird, not even the Kiwi whom we rarely see or even hear these days. The Tui has become very much an intimate part of our daily lives, whereas so many other birds have languished and died out or stayed away in the deep bush and shunned our presence. Walking back from the beach this morning with my dog, a Tui rudely and noisily swooped down in front of me out of a Norfolk pine, buzzing me like any magpie before landing on a low limb across the road. He perched there peering at me intently through the shrubbery while I wondered whether he and his mate had a nest in the pine or whether he was just being his usual pugnacious, obnoxious, joyous, jubilant self. I am sure it is the same bird I have been observing all spring and which seems to have staked out a territory nearby.

Aussies cruise home in underwhelming finish Glenn Maxwell steered Australia home. It was only light rain and former New Zealand great Mark Richardson was critical of the decision not to let play resume, saying the Aussies would only have needed a couple of overs to hit the 30 more runs required for victory. Glenn Maxwell 20 not out and Aaron Finch 18 not out were looking comfortable at the crease when the umpires ordered them back to the sheds. But that was where the jitters ended as Maxwell and Finch wrested back control. He tried to cut the short ball off the back foot but missed it and he was castled.
