Requested by: @gepwin
These birds are found on the North Island of New Zealand and smaller nearby islands, including Kapiti, Great Barrier Island, and Little Barrier Island. They eat insects and some spiders, along with seeds and fruit, foraging at all levels of the forest. Their nests are tightly woven cups, lined with moss and natural fibers. While females incubate the eggs alone, monogamous pairs are usually assisted by as many as six helper birds. Their nests are often parasitized by Long-tailed Cuckoos, as they are the only host for the species on the North Island.
