The Kea is a taonga (treasure) for Māori. Māori legend tells how the cheeky Kea bird got the beautiful splash of ‘secret’ colour hiding away beneath the Kea’s drab exterior. The Kea looked longingly upon the more brightly coloured feathers of other birds and wished for beautiful plumage. In the middle of the night, the Kea stole some of these brightly coloured feathers and secreted them under his wings before flying away.

These native parrots are highly intelligent and known for their cheeky personalities. The Kea cookie-cutter colour represents the bird’s feathers in olive green.

Tūī The Tūī, for Māori, is often associated with life fulfilment, confidence, and spiritual harmony. Tūī birds are said to be messengers of the Gods and Goddesses. They acted as a medium to communicate with the gods and goddesses in Māori beliefs. Māori sometimes trained Tūī to say traditional Māori phrases. Some chiefs taught their caged birds complex speeches. The Tūī cookie cutter colour represents the beautiful bird’s feathers in a striking deep blue.

Pīwakawaka or Fantail is known for its friendly call and energetic flying antics. Pīwakawaka are very friendly and are not afraid to hang around people.

Fantails remain in pairs all year round. Their fan is an adaptation that makes them very manoeuvrable in the air and able to quickly dart about to catch insects in flight. The Pīwakawaka cookie-cutter colour represents the beautiful bird’s chest feathers in rusty orange.
