A Mammal-Like Bird!
About kiwi bird of new zealand, kiwi bird is an endangered species of flightless bird found in new zealand. Their total population once stood at about 2 million but now their number is reduced to about 70,000.
The population is now stable. One of the primary reasons for their population decline is loss of habitat. The kiwi bird necessitates the existence of forests which they can use as refuge. The commercial development of forests has eliminated the forest cover that kiwi birds used to stand safely.
Kiwis have heavy, marrow-filled bones unlike most birds. They can run as fast as humans due to the powerful legs that make up a third of their body weight.
Unlike most birds, Kiwis have developed senses of smell and touch, whereas most species of birds rely heavily on sight.
