Under the light of the moon and with a handy lamp, this young toutouwai burns the midnight oil studying hard in a most unusual forest.
Fiercely intelligent, toutouwai can do complicated arithmetic and keeping wowing researchers with their abilities. They truly are quick studies.
This picture is part of my Flights of Fancy series - the first to feature a bird other than the kākā.
