pukeko--is another very common and well known bird, but unlike most of the birds on this page it is found in many other places around the world, including the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia and Melanesia. Like the name "tui", the word "pukeko" is of maori origin, but in other parts of the world it's called a purple swamphen or purple gallinule.

New Zealand Birds - Pukeko
Pukeko.... an iconic bird of NZ. These birds are unusual because: They share nests and the nest can therefore carry up to about 20 eggs. They share responsibilities for incubating the eggs, strategically acting as look outs, and defending the nest.

The fern frond unfurling
Doing a Maori art project later this year! The koru is a spiral shape based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattoos. The circular shape of the koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of origin.

New Zealand Paua Shell
Sea shells are also true natural gems.
'Paua shell' - Regarded by New Zealanders past and present as a taonga or treasure. Maori legend has it that paua was a special gift from Tangaroa, the God of The Sea. It is unique to New Zealand. This marine mollusk eats seaweed and lives clinging to rocks at depths of 1-10 meters, normally along the shoreline. Paua Shell is the most colorful of all the abalone shells. Most other abalone are pale in comparison.
