Description

The pretty, round Chatham Island Black Robin is a tiny miracle. In the early 80s, it was the world’s rarest bird – the population was down to a single egg-laying female. A successful breeding programme turned it around and the world cheered as it came back from certain extinction. While the Black Robin is still desperately rare, the population now sits at 250-300 birds. We can’t sing the praises of this lovely songbird enough. It deserves to be honoured in your backyard.

Our Robin is:

  • 12cm high by 31cm wide (includes measurement of the branch/spike)
  • Easily installed with the tap of a hammer (pre-drill hardwood)
  • Crafted in 3mm Corten® ‘weathering’ Steel to form a beautiful patina that changes with the seasons
  • Makes a great gift for someone who has defied the odds

Install Tip: Hold the Robin firmly with one hand, and hammer it onto the flat piece of the branch. We’ve found the most success by installing these birds in either trees or posts. If installing into a post or any other firmer structure, you may need to pre-drill a hole first.
