1b Ruru or Morepork (New Zealand owl)
The ruru accompanies Marion Rego's poem 'Ruru' which appears in 100 New Zealand Poems for Children, edited by Jo Noble and illustrated by David Elliot
All through the day, while the birds fly free,
Ruru sleeps in the old pine tree.
Deep in the hollow she hunches low,
And blinks her eyes at the sunshine glow.
