Most birds can fly - 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 running really fast - this is something Kiwis are good at. Out running humans is one of my favourite thins they can do. Kiwis are also amazing at fighting with their tough feet

The average size of a kiwi is a foot ball. Their eggs are the size of six hen eggs “WOW”
The largest kiwi is the Great Spotted Kiwi. Its twice as large as the Little Spotted Kiwi.

Kiwi's plumage isn’t that exciting. It’s not colourful 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


  1. You are obviously an expert on these weird birds.
    I really like your introduction, it makes out that kiwis are no good at all, then they seem SO unusual that Kiwis sound really special after all!
    Great hook for your audience.
