Tauhou

Waxeye…

Whiteeye…

More correctly, Silvereye.

So common here in New Zealand.

But what I did not realise was that it was not known here before the 1830’s. It was believed to have blown in from Australia, thus the Maoris called it ‘Tauhou’ which means ‘Stranger’ or ‘New Arrival’… good name, guys!
