Rifleman

Acanthisitta chloris (Sparrman, 1787)

The Rifleman (Acanthisitta chloris) (Māori: Tītipounamu) is a small insectivorous passerine bird that is endemic to New Zealand. It belongs to the Acanthisittidae family, also known as the New Zealand wrens, of which it is one of only two surviving species. The Rifleman resembles a wren in form but is not related to the family of true wrens, Troglodytidae, nor the fairy-wrens of Australia. Source: Wikipedia
