“A large cuckoo with speckled brown plumage and a very long tail — the Koekoeā is a New Zealand migratory bird, spending New Zealand’s cooler winter in islands of the northern Pacific waters and returning around October at the start of our summer.
“A spiritual bird, it was said that the mythical hero Tāwhaki after journeying to the sacred heights returned with three birds, Koekoeā, Huia and Kotuku (White Heron) to provide his wife with their plumes for adornment. Having once rescued a dazed Koekoeā, I hope I have managed to capture a little of its beauty.”
