Kōrero: Ngā heke i te Wai Nui

Te koekoeā (long-tailed cuckoo) me te riroriro (grey warbler).

Te koekoeā (long-tailed cuckoo) me te riroriro (grey warbler).

Hei te takurua tau ai te koekoeā ki ngā moutere o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, ā, hei te kōanga rere whakatetonga ai rātou. Kāore e kore i mātakina ēnei haerenga me ēnei hokinga e ngā tāngata kei aua moutere e noho ana. I mōhio rātou, e rere ana aua manu ki tētahi whenua kei tua o te pae o te rangi. Nā tēnei pea i ara ake ngā kōrero me ngā pātai mō ngā moutere kei te wai nui.
