Description

At night, a kiwi calling, then its mate replying - heard but not seen. The kiwi have been reintroduced to the area after being locally extinct for decades. They are free to roam, feed, breed etc without human intervention, but are surrounded by a fence to protect them from introduced predators. The fence is not designed to keep them in (and other flighted birds reintroduced to the sanctuary come and go as they please), but as kiwi can't fly none have left the area!

Description from Wikipedia

A ratite is any of a diverse group of large, flightless birds of the superorder Palaeognathae. There is still some controversy regarding the systematics involved. Some sources state that Ratites are synonymous with Struthioniformes, while other sources state that Ratites are the same group, only that the order Struthioniformes contains only the Ostrich and possibly the Elephant Bird. Ratites belong to the modern bird superorder Palaeognathae which consists of ratites and tinamous (compare to Neognathae). Unlike...
