Kiwi Bird Fun Stuff!

In the last few months, I've found some wonderful information about kiwi birds and the people who love them that doesn't fit anywhere else on my site. I hope you enjoy this page, which is just for fun!

The Enchanted Learning site has a wonfderful, simple printout sheet on the kiwi. The picture might be good to use if you want to have something to trace and color yourself.

The Rainbow Kiwi page has the cutest animated cartoon of a kiwi that I've ever seen. The site also has other good information about kiwis, and tells you about a place where you can meet kiwi face-to-face while visiting New Zealand.

Ever wanted to ride a kiwi? Someone named Jessica did! If you know who Jessica is, please let me know. I'd like to know where this park is.

The background art for this page was drawn by my e-friend Kuina who calls it "The Kiwi's Revenge". To see a full version of Kuina's picture, click here.

Kuina's also done a wonderful picture of a pair of kiwis waiting for their egg to hatch. You can see it here.

Lovers of folk music will want to visit Phil Garland, The Singing Kiwi, who has written some lovely songs about our favorite bird and the people who proudly bear its name. "The Gift of Life" is one of the most beautiful.

I'm collecting songs about kiwi birds. If you know any I've missed, please let me know.

Are you a kiwi bird collector? One way I've found to locate kiwi collectables is to search at e-Bay frequently. I now have six stuffed toy kiwi, several books, three sculptures, and some wonderful kiwi jewelry!

Would you like to spend the night in a kiwi? You can at The Brown Kiwi Bed and Breakfast in Aukland, New Zealand!

I've found a wonderful kiwi poem, by Marianne Moore, who was born and lived her early years in Kirkwood, Missouri, just a couple of miles from my own childhood home. Have a look at The Mind is an Enchanting Thing and if you find any more poetry about the kiwi, please let me know.

Finally, here is the beautful Maori story of How the Kiwi Lost Its Wings, which I think you'll find moving!
