A picture of a kiwi bird

Kiwi is a name given to a New Zealand bird because of its strange cry. It is about a size of hen and had a long , slender beak which sticks out like a knife. The beak has nostrils near the tip. The wigs are concealed and cannot be used to fly.

The bird has the remains of what was once a tail, and its body is covered with grayish brown feathers which looks like hair.

The kiwi hunts food at night and hides in the daytime. It lives in the woods or hilly country. A kiwi rolls up like a ball when it sleeps . The birds are timid and run away when anyone comes near.

They eat worms ,insects and berries. They scratch nests in a burrow and lay one or two white eggs. The eggs are oval shaped and weigh about one fourth as much as the female.

New Zealand laws now protect birds . Otherwise it will soon be extinct , because of that the New Zealanders are fond of its meat, and kiwi multiplies slowly.
