The kaka brought mana from Hawaiki to Aotearoa through the form of a red stone or kernel. They carried the sacred red feathers on their bodies. These manu made useful pets and were trained to complete a number of tasks including luring other manu into traps. They could speak and it was even said play the kōauau! - Robin

We are taken to a quiet stream where bird song is prolific. Many manu are represented by edge tone playing of three different pūtōrino and added to this mix are karanga manu (especially riroriro) as well as karanga weka and hue puruhau (kākāpō) - Bob
