Fact of the Day: Kiwi Bird

The national bird of New Zealand is the kiwi. You actually have no chance of seeing a kiwi in nature outside of New Zealand as the birds are flightless.

  7. But we can see kiwi fruit! And they don't fly either. So how does that work?

  8. Interesting how nature has determined that this bird doesn't need to fly to survive, unless man interferes.
