Flightless Birds of Aotearoa Habitats Matching Tray Wooden Puzzle
There are around forty species of flightless birds in the world, with Aotearoa/New Zealand being home to the greatest number of these species. Among New Zealand’s flightless birds are the Kiwi, Takahe, Kakapo, Weka and several species of Penguins. One reason New Zealand has so many flightless birds is that, before humans arrived, there were no land mammals that preyed on birds. Predators were other birds, such as the laughing owl, eagle, goshawk and falcon.
