Kiwi and Kiwi Chick sketch

In honor of Waitangi Day (Feb 6) in New Zealand are two featured sketches of the national bird – the Kiwi. A flightless bird indigenous to the island nation, the Kiwi are the only birds with nostrils at the end of it’s beak. There are six varieties of Kiwi found in New Zealand.  A nocturnal bird that feeds on worms, insects and berries they form mating pairs for life. A female Kiwi can lay up to 100 eggs during it’s lifetime.
