A beautiful ceramic wall ornament by Bob Steiner celebrating our native Owl, the Ruru.
The Ruru, also known as a Morepork (Ninox Novaeseelandiae) is New Zealand's only surviving native owl. The moreporks distinctive call is often heard in the forest at dusk and throughout the night. Its Maori name, ruru, reflects this call. The moreporks are superb night hunters.
