The Pīwakawaka or Fantail is known for its friendly call and energetic flying antics. Pīwakawaka are very friendly and are not afraid to hang around people.
Pīwakawaka remain in pairs all year round. Their fan is a feature that makes them very maneuverable in the air and able to quickly dart about to catch insects in flight.
The Pīwakawaka cookie cutter colour represents the beautiful bird’s chest feathers in rust orange.
