- The endemic piwakawaka or New Zealand fantail (Rhipidura fulginosa) is one of New Zealand's most commonly encountered native birds. They have a distinctive 'cheet cheet' call and will often fly playfully close to humans, with their tails spread wide into a fan. Around the Mt Iron reserve in Wanaka, and especially during autumn, they are often seen flitting through the branches of the native tree Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides). There are two colour variations - pied and black, although the black form is extremely rare in the North Island and present in lass than 5% of the South Island population -
All prints have excellent archival properties and are printed in Nelson, New Zealand on 300gsm, 100% post consumer waste recycled stock. Please be aware that because the prints are made with recycled stock, very tiny flecks may be present on some of the paper. I enjoy the natural look this gives and feel it is much preferable to printing on paper made from old-growth forest pulp!
Each is individually signed and monogrammed and comes with a thick board backing, information blurb on rear and enclosed in a 'cellophane' bag for protection. Shipped flat in recycled cardboard packaging.
