This is a Bell bird. Named by Captain Cook for the quality of its song. This character performed for me as I walked to my sister's house to feed her cat. I whistle back at them to excite them and they get a bit fiesty.
My phone camera is good but couldn't cope with the strong back-lit sky  hence the silhouette. 
Known in Maori language as "Korimako".
