My Feathered Counterpart

So I have a new favorite animal. I was watching Wild Pacific last week on TV and I found my feathered counterpart. The Kakapo is a super endangered bird that only lives in New Zealand. Its too fat to fly, weighing in at almost 8 pounds, and developed large claws to climb to the top of trees for its food. Since there are about 100 birds left in the world, volunteer opportunites are available. I checked them out an in addition to a trip to New Zealand, you get to provide supplementary food and build nests for the birds because they are that lazy. A bird after my own heart. I couldn't find one, but, videos of Kakpos running are pirceless.
