KAKAPO

Kakapo parrot from New Zealand. They are large, nocturnal, flightless parrots who are also incredibly endangered. Impossible to see them, but knowing such neat animals live in New Zealand makes me want to visit.

The Fantail or Piwakawaka- friendly little fellows will accompany anyone strolling through the countryside. #birds
