Tane is the Maori God of the Forests, and a powerful deity in Maori mythology. NZ has few forest species of birds left sadly after human settlement about 1000 years ago.

Since then NZ has lost all its moas and adzebills, almost all of the wrens, the Haast's eagle, the huia, owlet-nightjar, laughing owl and more.
