The saddleback or tīeke belongs to New Zealand's unique wattlebird family, an ancient group which includes the endangered kōkako and the extinct huia. Quick facts There are two species: North Island saddleback (Philesturnus rufusater) and South Island saddleback (P. carunculatus). The most endangered of the two species is the South Island saddleback, with only 650 birds in existence. It is a medium sized bird, and adults of both sexes have similar plumage. The bird's main feature is a conspicuous chestnut-coloured saddle on its back, but it also has chestnut on the tip of its tail, a black bill, black legs, and orange, 'fleshy' wattles either side of its throat.
