The Morepork/Ruru - Ninox Novaeseelandiae
Moreporks are a species of owl indigenous to New Zealand.
The Morepork gets its name from its distinctive two-pitched call. It is said to be the most common native animal sound heard at night, however it is rare to actually observe a Morepork in their natural habitat. Mainly nocturnal, Moreporks are excellent night hunters: the soft edges of their feathers allow the owls to glide silently through the night to stalk their prey.
In efforts to protect and maintain the population of Moreporks and other native birds in New Zealand, Moreporks Clothing restores native habitat via the One Tree Planted program. Each order with our online store plants trees such as Manuka, Pohutukawa, Kauri and many other necessary natives.
