About this object
A photograph of two birds thought to have been taken at Tutira Station in the early twentieth century. The birds, which are shown perched on the branches of a tree near their nest, are thought to be riroriro or grey warblers (Gerygone igata). The two birds each have an insect between their beaks. The tree is possibly a mānuka or kāhikatoa.

The photograph is mounted in an album titled: Photographs of birds on Tutira Station.
