On my way down the No. 1 Line track a couple of days ago I stopped to try to photograph a riroriro (grey warbler) — an exercise in frustration (I did manage some passable photographs, though). Soon after I began the attempt, this little miromiro (North Island tomtit, and yes those names are very similar) showed up. The mottling on her head suggests she's a juvenile.
