Birdlife x Metalbird - Bar-Tailed Godwit
Easy & Fun To Install
Create Special Moments
Timeless Piece of Art
Supports Bird Conservation
Bar-tailed Godwits are the world record holders for non-stop flight: they have been recorded travelling 11,000km from Alaska to New Zealand in only 8 days, flying at an average of more than 50km/h. This journey is also a fantastic weight-loss program, as the birds lose almost half of their body weight along the way. Luckily, once they arrive in Australia, our mudflats are waiting, filled with tasty morsels to help them recuperate.
Installation: Features a spike on the bottom of the bird to be installed into lawn, ground or pot plants. If you want to install it into a fence post as pictured, we recommend cutting a slot into the post first so as not to damage the bird when it's hammered in.
Material: 3mm Corten steel designed to age beautifully and rust over time.
Size: 20cm x 28cm.
Our birds are designed with 3mm 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.

MADE FROM PREMIUM CORTEN STEEL
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 colouring that will get darker over the years.
