Whitehead

Mohoua albicilla (Lesson, 1830)

The Whitehead (Mohoua albicilla) or Pōpokotea is a small species ( 15 cm in length, 18.5/14.5 g.) of passerine bird endemic to New Zealand. It is currently classified in the family Pachycephalidae and thus regarded as a relative of the whistlers in Australia and the unusual pitohuis, a genus of poisonous birds from New Guinea.The Male Whitehead's upperparts, wings and tail are a pale brown in colour, while the head and underparts are white -in the case of the former an almost pure white in colour. Females and juveniles have similar colouration except that the nape and crown (top of the head) are shaded brown. The black beak and eyes contrast with the white head and the feet are bluish black in colouration. Source: Wikipedia
