New Zealand, Hanging & Clip Birds
DescriptionThe Kotare has been recorded as diving up to 1 meter to hunt for its prey. With flashes of turquiose and blue this colourful bird is a favourite of New Zealanders. It often nests in clay cliffs along roadsides and the baby birds can be heard calling for their parents when you walk past.
This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, beads, coloured and metallic threads. It is small and light enough to post put in a Christmas card.
