South Island Wren

Xenicus gilviventris von Pelzeln, 1867

The New Zealand Rockwren (Xenicus gilviventris), or Rock Wren, or Pīwauwau in (Māori, is a small New Zealand wren (family Acanthisittidae) endemic to the South Island of New Zealand. It is sometimes known as the South Island Wren, a name used to separate it from the unrelated Rock Wren of North America. While the species is currently restricted to alpine areas of the South Island, fossil evidence indicates it was once present in the North Island as well. It is the rarer of the two surviving species of New Zealand wrens and is threatened by introduced mammals. Source: Wikipedia
