Only found in the southern half of New Zealand, the Mohua nests in tree holes, making it highly vulnerable to predators like possums, stoats and rats. A beautiful splash of bright yellow covers its head and breast while the rest of the body is brown with varying tinges of yellow and olive. The Mohua is the bird featured on our $100 note. Yellowhead / Mohua calls vary around the South Island because Yellowhead have strong dialects.
