Found only in New Zealand, this fearless predator is a threatened species in danger of extinction. This protected bird can be found living in the forests of the North Island, the open country of the eastern South Island, and near the water in the coastal Fiordland, Stewart and Auckland Islands. Capable of flying at speeds over 100 kilometres per hour, this bold and determined predator can take prey weighing up to 6 times it's own body weight and is not distracted from the hunt until it has success. Like all Falcons, the NZ Falcon does not build a nest in the trees but rather makes a scrape in the ground to lay it's eggs and the male and female both share caring for their eggs. This plush bird has shiny button eyes and when you squeeze it's chest makes the sound of the real NZ Falcon.
