It's a Falcon, but not as Ford knows it! Announcing our new design, our karearea! (NZ falcon) Falcon as!
The coolest bird has just landed in our nest! The aptly named karearea (New Zealand falcon) meaning 'caretaker' is New Zealand's only falcon.

Slightly smaller than real life, our new design comes in at 30cm long. But, weighing in at 400g, our karearea is around the same weight as the real thing. Who would figure? Any bird that gets to grace a $20 dollar bill is the business, we reckon!
