Medium: karuri, haematite eyes, painted MDF. Size: 35.25 x 18 x 13 inches incl. base. A New Zealand endemic, the Kārearea is a powerful, swift, medium sized bird of prey with long-fingered wings, a long tail, a short hooked bill and long sharp talons. Primarily a bird of the forest and bush, a loss of habitat by human encroachment has severely reduced its range and driven it out of settled areas into more remote regions.
