Popokotea – Whitehead – Mohoua albicilla

Popokotea - Whitehead - Mohoua albicilla
I’m really pleased with these photos. These little birds are SO hard to photograph as they are the hyperactive denizens of the bush and are constantly on the move! Even worse, this bird was beneath the canopy in shapde, so some of the pics are a bit soft. But they’re still the best shots I have yet of Popokotea at Zealandia, the Karori Sanctuary.
Popokotea are a small species (15 cm in length, 18.5/14.5g of passerine bird endemic to New Zealand. The Male Whitehead’s upperparts, wings and tail are a pale brown in colour, while the head and underparts 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.
Formerly widespread in the North Island, the Whitehead has suffered a marked decline in the past two centuries since European colonisation and today is restricted to a fraction of its former range. It has been the subject of an active conservation campaign and has been successfully reintroduced into reserves near Auckland and Wellington respectively. Often encountered in small flocks comprising of family groups.
The diet of Whiteheads is primarily insectivorous in nature – they are classed as arboreal insectivores. Their main prey are spiders, moths, caterpillars and beetles which are gleaned from tree trunks, leaves and branches in the canopy and subcanopy. They rarely feed on the forest floor. They will supplement their predominantly insectivorous diet with the fruits of native plants such as Mahoe and matipo. They frequently hang upside down from branches or twigs while feeding. Whiteheads will often form mixed-species feeding flocks with Saddlebacks, kakariki or Silvereyes to catch the insects these birds dislodge as they feed.
The range of this species has always been restricted to the North Island of New Zealand, as well as several offshore islands surrounding it. It has however, contracted markedly since the 19th century due to a number of human induced factors. Whiteheads are generally restricted to the larger tracts of older scrub and native forest that remain in the North Island but have proven their adaptibility by establishing populations in a number of exotic pine plantations, particularly on the North Island Volcanic Plateau.
The Whitehead builds a conventional cup shaped nest at a height between 1 and 15 metres above the ground; either in the canopy of the forest or lower down in smaller trees or shrubs. Between 2-4 eggs of variable colouration are laid, the incubation period is generally around 18 days and fledging takes a further 16-19, the chicks being fed by both parents. In November and December, the Long-tailed Cuckoo frequently acts as a brood parasite of nesting whiteheads by pushing their eggs out of the nest and laying a single egg of its own in their place.
The Whitehead held a special place within Maori culture among the forest birds of New Zealand. They featured not only in Maori folklore and legends but also in a number of rites for which live individuals were captured.
Flocks of Whiteheads form part of the hakuturi, a multitude of small birds sometimes called Te Tini o te Hakuturi – "The myriads of Hakuturi", the spirit guardians of the forest. In a Ngati Mahuta story, the culture hero Rata went into the forest and cut down a tree to make a canoe, but failed to perform the proper placatory rites to Tane, god of the forest. Whiteheads and Riflemen whistled shrilly at him in admonishment and gathered together the pieces of the tree until it stood whole again. This happened several times until Rata showed remorse and the birds felled the tree and made the canoe for him. In some stories, the Whitehead was one of several small birds chosen by Maui to accompany him in his (ultimately unsuccessful and fatal) quest to abolish death by killing Hine-nui-te-po, the goddess of night and death. The mobbing behaviour sometimes seen in Whiteheads is reflected in one legend which tells of swarms of Whiteheads scratching out the eyes of Whaitiri, goddess of thunder, as they pass her house, thus causing her to go blind.
The Whitehead, as a messenger between man and the gods, was a very tapu (sacred) bird. This status was reflected in its role in the tohi rite, a ritual performed over an infant. This entailed a tohunga touching the head of an infant with a live Whitehead and reciting a karakia (incantation) firstly to cause the mana (power and prestige) of the gods to descend on the child from the gods and secondly to open the child’s eyes and ears to the knowledge of the ancestors. After the karakia was complete the bird was freed to demonstrate that the mana received would return to the gods when the child died. The Whitehead also held this role as a messenger to the gods when a new pa (fortified village) was dedicated. Once the ceremonies were complete a single Whitehead was released unharmed, the pa became fr
