The South Island Kōkako is extinct but thanks to predator-controlled areas, the North Island bird, with its extraordinary haunting call, lives on. If you're lucky enough to catch it in action, you’ll see it wearing a black burgler’s mask and rich blue wattles, and, not being crash-hot fliers, mostly bounding along branches on powerful legs. They make up for their fairly average flying abilities with complex singing, including the longest known duetting of any songbird in the world. We reckon Kōkako deserves a special place at your place.
Our Kōkako is:
✓ 32cm high by 21cm wide approximately 300g
✓ Easy to send our regular boxes are standard A4 size, measuring 31cm x 21 cm x 1cm
✓ Same day dispatch on orders placed before 2pm on weekdays
✓ Made locally in a family-owned factory, right here in NZ
✓ Crafted from 3mm Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
✓ Easy to install holding on a downwards angle simply tap the thickest end of the stake with a hammer or mallet until secure
Our birds are designed with 3mm CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.
This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.
What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.
CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.

MADE FROM PREMIUM CORTEN STEEL
Corten Steel or ‘Weathering Steel’ is used in high-end exterior architecture, for good reason. Exposed to the elements, within weeks it develops a patina that seals the steel and preserves it for decades. It also leaves a beautiful even colouring that will get darker over the years.
