Two Kodachrome Slides showing a close up of the Bird Catching Plant "Heimerliodendron brunn. Para Para. Pukekura Park 05/07/1979. G Fuller"

The scientific name is now known as Pisonia brunoniana

This is the only NZ representative of the sub-tropical plants that produce sticky fruits in February and March, which may capture and kill birds or lizards. Gardeners remove the seed pods to ensure the safety of wildlife.
