World's rarest bird pictures: A dance in search of a partner
Kakapo, large, flightless, nocturnal, ground dwelling parrot of New Zealand. Critically endangered, estimated 130 left. Has a highly developed sense of smell.

Te puede arrancar el ojo a picotazos con ese chiliyo de pico chistoso que tiene. Una cosa graciosa, es que los kiwis ponen huevos enormes en comparación de su tamaño, y los papás los incuban, mientras las hembras buscan alimentos. Viva el matriarcado La UICN tiene clasificados al kiwi común, al moteado mayor y al moteado menor como vulnerables, y al marrón…
