According to Maori
Kupe the Polynesian voyager found New Zealand around 1000 years ago.
Watching the clouds means that land is near. Sometimes underneath the clouds it would have a hint of a green color.
The birds came out in the morning to feed and return at night. When the Voyagers found the birds they would wait until it was night to go to land.
When the sun rose it came from east and setted in the direction of west. So the voyagers would know wich way was North, East, South and West so they could go the right way back home.
When the waves were up and running the voyagers would know if there was land nearby.
