Ruru Morepork by Metalbird. Often heard, rarely seen, it?? very hard to get a close encounter with a Ruru. It hangs out in dense forests, singing out its English name ??more-pork. Silent flight is one of its superpowers along with the ability to rotate its neck 270 degrees, not to be creepy but to look for prey like moths, beetles, mice and lizards. Ruru?? big shining yellow eyes play an important part in Maori mythology and tradition. It??l look amazing in your backyard especially with the full moon behind it.

The Ruru?is: 31cm?high by 24cm?wide approximately 300g, 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

These 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?? panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it?? 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.
