Kiwis Are Cool


Most birds can fly, but Kiwis cant.
There’s even birds that are as tall as humans, kiwis aren’t.
Some birds are very loud, certainly not kiwis. Many birds run really fast, this is something Kiwis are good at. They can even out run humans, thats one of my favourite things they can do. Kiwis are also amazing at fighting with their tough feet .

The average size of a kiwi is a foot ball. Their are eggs that are the size of six hen eggs “WOW”
The largest kiwi is the great spotted. Its twice as large as the average


Kiwis plumage isn’t that exciting. It’s not colorful like a parrot or smooth like a duck. It’s just plain brown with bits of blond. Whats even worse is their beak!! It can grow up to 20 cm long and is really known as a bill. Kiwis are a weird bird but I still think they are cool.


Many people see Kiwis with no wings. They think because they can’t fly.They don’t have wings , but really they do. If you ruffle your hand in their feathers, you will find a little claw the size of your little finger that is part of their wings

Traders were early settler people who sold and bought from the Maori and the Pakeha.
They sold all sorts of weapons, plus blankets, land and tools.
