Morepork Throw Blanket

The native morepork is known for its haunting, melancholic call. This sound gives it the Māori name ‘ruru’.

Often heard in the forest at dusk and throughout the night, the morepork (Ninox novaeseelandiae) is known for its haunting, melancholic call. Its Māori name, ruru, reflects this call.

Morepork are speckled brown with yellow eyes set in a dark facial mask. They have a short tail.

The females are bigger than the males. Head to tail they measure around 29 cm and the average weight is about 175 g.

They have acute hearing and are sensitive to light. They can turn their head through 270 degrees.

Morepork are nocturnal, hunting at night for large invertebrates including beetles, weta, moths and spiders. They will also take small birds, rats and mice, and fly silently as they have soft fringes on the edge of the wing feathers. They catch prey using large sharp talons or beak.

By day they roost in the cavities of trees or in thick vegetation. If they are visible during the day they can get mobbed by other birds and are forced to move.

Note on Shipping:

These items on my website are not items I keep in stock in my office studio in Stoke, Nelson, NZ. They are printed on demand and shipped by my awesome collaboration partners from all over the world. I love print on demand, it means I can offer a huge range of high quality items with no wastage. Nothing is created until you order it, and then it is printed just for you. So the shipping rates are set by them and not something I have any control over.
