These beautiful bird mobiles will never tire of flying! They float gently in a breeze or you can set it in motion by pulling a string below.

The Kererū (or NZ wood pigeon) and Tui are both endemic to New Zealand.

Although quiet and reclusive by nature, kererū have earned a reputation as the drunkest bird in New Zealand and been known to fall from trees after consuming rotting fruit left lying on the ground. Kererū play a vital role in dispersing the seeds of native New Zealand species such as karaka, miro, tawa and taraire across large areas, because they are one of the few birds large enough to swallow the fruit whole.

Whereas the Tui are known for a beautiful song, aerobatic flight and a complete focus with guarding flowering trees and flax pods that provide the main food of nectar.
