Timeless Piece of Art

Supports Bird Conservation

As Seen In

Some days the garden can feel like wall-to-wall Waxeyes, flitting about with their pretty green heads and white eye-rings. They absolutely love fruit and, being so small, can pop niftily in and out of bird netting helping itself to anything you care to grow. A great wee mum, Tauhou can pop out two broods of pale blue eggs in a season and hatch them in her tiny cup-shaped nest lined with soft grass, moss, hair, and spiderwebs, slung like a hammock between branches. We’ve captured her in supermum mode, feeding her chicks.

Our Tauhou & Chicks is:

 17cm high by 26cm 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.
