New Zealand Birds

He hara wa te manu? 
What is this bird? 
It is a wood-robin. 
What is the bird? 
Now, 'tis a sparrow-hawk. 
It jumps hither and thither, chirping “Ti-ti!” 
It jumping there, calling “ke-te!” 
It skips, it flutters from bough to bough. 
This is the bird that is to bring forth men, 
The parent of mankind. 
O wife of mine. 
Come hither! 
Approach and fly to my embrace.
