Kiwi, 2021


The kiwi is a treasured national icon, endemic to New Zealand. There are five species of kiwi and all are nocturnal. Unlike other birds, smell is their primary sense and their nostrils are located at the end of their beak which is very useful for foraging on the forest floor.

Although they have tiny wings, they are completely flightless which makes them vulnerable to introduced species. What they lack in wingspan, however, they make up for with powerful legs which are about one third of their body weight and can run as fast as a human.

The ladder fern in the background is the rare native Nephrolepis flexuosa, often confused with the more invasive tuber ladder fern (N. cordifolia)
