ninakamwene, I live in NZ and have seen many Kia. They're really not that small. Lol

Linalinda Eichin, Kiwi are nocturnal, so only come out at night. They also have poor eyesight. They eat roots and leaves and are rarely seen during the day. They are flightless. They are a protected species and are New Zealand/s national bird. (We New Zealanders also call ourselves Kiwis too!) Just thought I would share!!

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.

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.
