Q: When is a bird not a bird? A: When it is a kiwi. Following publication of The Incredible Kiwi in 1990, this book takes a new look at New Zealand’s national bird, its physical characteristics, evolution, taxonomy, lifecycle and lifestyle, the hazards it faces and the efforts being made to protect it. Cultural angles include the bird’s elevation as a national emblem and the significance of kiwi to Maori.
