Illustration
Miro (Prumnopitys ferruginea) is a forest tree and each year it produces a regular crop of fleshy, large bright red seeds. The seeds are an important food source for forest birds in winter. Māori hunted kererū at this time, as the birds often gorged themselves on so many seeds that they could barely fly. Miro is considered a taonga (treasured) species of the Ngai Tahu. Its timber is straight and strong, and the leaves, fruit, bark and gum provided food, aromatic oils and various medical and antiseptic uses. Historically, Miro was used primarily for building houses – the timber looks like rimu and has similar properties.

Coastal Copper (Lycaena salustius) is a small butterfly found only in New Zealand. They are common in mid-summer in warm open places and are attracted to blackberry flowers.
