The inspiration:
The kakaruwai/South Island robin is endemic to NZ, mostly spotted foraging for invertebrates on the ground and curiously monitoring human visitors in mature forest and scrub habitats. Today, the robins' main threat is predation by introduced mammalian predators such as stoats, possums, feral cats, and ship rats; predators eliminate the young and nesting females, causing a male-biased population to result.

Care:
- Made with materials that contain lead. The risk is minimal, but as a precaution wash hands after handling to avoid ingesting particles.
- Best kept inside for longevity.
