The kiwi is New Zealand's national and endangered bird. But you can not just find a kiwi anywhere they live in rain-forest and they only come out at night.
The native bird I have chosen is the Little Spotted Kiwi. The most common place they are found is on Kapiti Island. It is the smallest of all the Kiwi family and normally weighs between 1.2 to 2kg. Little Spotted Kiwis eat things like worms, cicadas, bugs, small fruit and leaves.
There were not any of these kiwis left on the north or south Island, but now they put some on some of the smaller islands around Auckland and Wellington. They live in forests and cannot fly. They are nocturnal, which means they come out at night and sleep during the day.
I think they are really cute!
