Meet Ruru, a bird of the night and a silent Night Hunter! Dusk creeps. Birds peep. Ruru opens his eyes, stretches his wings, and calls ... More-pork! More-pork! Ruru, also known as a morepork, is Aotearoa New Zealand’s only surviving species of native owl. This book, set in an urban landscape, follows Ruru’s nocturnal activities, where he hunts prey, feeds his chicks and navigates the dangers lurking within his environment.
