A beautiful and smart parrot. My daughter is half Kiwi and I have not seen it on my visits to NZ Kiwi Land. Thank you for sharing Quiz Folks and be well.

What an amazing, smart and beautiful bird. Sometimes I wonder who's smarter, Animals or Man. It certainly is something to think about, that's for sure. Be safe, be healthy, take care of your family and protect yourselves. God Bless...👍

I saw both Kia and Kiwi birds while in New Zealand. The Kia was sitting in a tree in my sister's yard and the Kiwi was in a sanctuary. Very cool to see different wildlife

Very cheeky birds, but their beauty is only seen when in flight. Otherwise, they are very drab looking. Most common in the South Island.
