They are one of the most common birds found in urban Wellington, they are usually seen singly, in pairs, or in small family groups, but will congregate in large numbers at suitable food sources, often in company with silvereyes, bellbirds, or kererū (New Zealand wood pigeon) in any combination.

Generally, when interspecific competition for the same food resources among New Zealand's three species of honeyeater occurs, there is a hierarchy with the tui at the top, then bellbirds and stitchbirds successively subordinate to the species above them—they are thus frequently chased off by tui at a food source such as a flowering flax plant.

Watching a tui sing, one can observe gaps in the sound when the beak is agape and throat tufts throbbing.

The powered flight of tui is quite loud as they have developed short wide wings, giving excellent maneuverability in the dense forest they prefer, but requiring rapid flapping, they can be seen to perform a mating display of rising at speed in a vertical climb in clear air, before stalling and dropping into a powered dive, then repeating.

Nectar is the normal diet but fruit and insects are frequently eaten, and pollen and seeds more occasionally.

Predation by introduced species remains a threat, particularly brushtail possums (which eat eggs and chicks), stoats, the common myna (which compete with tui for food and sometimes takes eggs), and rats.

Tui prefer broadleaf forests below 1500 metres, but will tolerate quite small remnant patches, regrowth, exotic plantations and well-vegetated suburbs.

Tepper is best known for her feminist science fiction and fantasy, whose interrelated themes range from ecology to religion to pacifism.

Her books provide fascinating glimpses of an all-too-possible future.
