Little Spotted Kiwi

Apteryx owenii Gould, 1847

The Little Spotted Kiwi or Little Gray Kiwi, Apteryx owenii, is a small species of kiwi originally from New Zealand's South Island (they used to live near Marlborough and where Tokoeka currently live). Around 1890 to 1910 a population of them was trans-located to Kapiti Island for conservation purposes. Little Spotted Kiwis are the smallest species of kiwi, at about 0.9–1.9 kg (2.0–4.2 lb), about the size of a bantam. Source: Wikipedia
