Timeless Piece of Art
Supports Bird Conservation
Introducing our remarkable Pūteketeke 'friend'! Celebrating an extraordinary moment in election history, the Pūteketeke not only won the Forest & Bird bird of the century election but the heart of John Oliver, the famed USA chat show host who unexpectedly became Pūteketeke's campaign manager.
As proud partners of Forest & Bird, Metalbird creates a silhouette of the winner every year, directing 30% of all proceeds to F&B. You can check out the Pūteketeke here, and because no Pūteketeke is complete without their biggest supporter, add the 'friend' clip-on at cart.
Our Pūteketeke Friend is:
✓ 5.5" high by 3.5" wide approximately 3.5oz
✓ Easy to gift wrapped in a A6 branded envelope
✓ Made locally in a family-owned factory, right here in the USA
✓ Crafted from 11 gauge Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
✓ Easy to install simply hook onto the back of your Pūteketeke Metalbird, or find a creative way to display anywhere that you want!
More than a quirky turn of events, it symbolizes the unexpected support and funding raised for the native birdlife of Aotearoa by our North American friends. This event wasn't just about competition; it was a celebration of global unity and support for nature.
Our birds are designed with 1/8-inch CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.
This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.
What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.
CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.

Corten Steel or ‘Weathering Steel’ is used in high-end exterior architecture, for good reason. Exposed to the elements, within weeks it develops a patina that seals the steel and preserves it for decades. It also leaves a beautiful even coloring that will get darker over the years.
Whether you bought it for yourself, received it as a gift, or it fell straight from the sky and into your yard, we want to know what you think of your Metalbird!
