Have you ever seen a Kiwi bird before and are they annoying?

Hi Chase.
Yes, funny you should ask that. I actually used to volunteer for Project Kiwi, which is a charity devoted to restoring the native population of kiwi to a sustainable level...I have seen several face to face, and I was involved with radio-tracking our birds also...in the region where I live we have managed to sustain a population of between 60-80 birds in the wild.

They are incredible creatures...not really annoying (think of a bird-like hedgehog)...they actually have a lot of mammalian features like ovaries, whiskers(the only bird that has them I think), fur instead of feathers, bone marrow instead of hollow etc

They can be very aggressive for their size, more than a match for a Possum or cat (they can kill a possum if they really have to), but generally they are very quiet. They are also quite stupid, and the chicks can often be found sticking their head under a bush with their bum poking out in order to hide from a predator.
I never really found them to be annoying.
