The New Zealand robin/toutouwai is a sparrow-sized bird found only in New Zealand.
They are friendly and trusting, often coming to within a couple of metres of people. The people themselves are not always the attraction but the invertebrates disturbed by the activities of people.
When using the name New Zealand robin you may be referring to:
North Island robin (Petroica longipes)
South Island robin (Petroica australis australis)
Stewart Island robin (Petroica australis rakiura)
They are all New Zealand robins although, strictly speaking,the North Island robin is a completely different species from the other two subspecies.
