Takahe Blues | Limited Edition

Rachel Walker

Delivery (NZ & INTL)

Once thought to be extinct the takahē has clung to existence despite the pressures of hunting, habitat destruction and introduced predators.

In 1948 it hit world headlines when an Invercargill doctor, Geoffrey Orbell, rediscovered the bird high in the tussock grasslands of the remote Murchison Mountains, Fiordland.

Rachel Walker has captured the colourful plumage of this large bird ranging from its iridescent dark blue head through to its turquoise and olive green wings and back.
