The Kotare / Sacred Kingfisher is a native bird in New Zealand and is a common sight around the waterways through-out the country. The conservation status of this native bird is consider not threatened.

There are eight sub-species of the Sacred Kingfisher around the world. The other seven reside in Australia, New Caledonia, the Loyalty, Lord Howe, Norfolk and Kermadec Islands. The Sacred Kingfisher is different to the Eurasian Kingfisher found in other countries around the world.

Our research shows us the Kotare has never won NZ Bird of the Year. Voting is in apx October/November every year and is always an exciting and heavily competed contest.

The Kotare sparkly decoration was introduced in 2018. 

This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, beads and coloured metallic threads. It is nice and light for posting. If you need to send them internationally we can do it for you. Handy information - The cost to send up to 10x NZ Bird sparkly decorations to the same international address is the same as sending 1x.
