Yes, this is a real Kiwi.... take it they are nocturnal birds, catching this one was easy enough!!! It’s a "real" but stuffed Kiwi, strategically placed behind a tree stump to make believe it was a "nature" shot!!! I still think it's a cute shot!!! fooled you?

I must say I was amazed when I saw the shot - I only caught a brief glimpse of one at dusk on my trip to NZ! Thanks for owning up :-)

I wondered what he was doing awake during the day, and way out of his habitat. But it's nice to see a kiwi portrayed all the same.

What a cute little bird too bad its dead :)
I love the colors and the details in its feathers.

Even tho it is stuffed, this is the first 'real' kiwi I have ever seen in my life. Thanks. :-)

Et voilà ce fameux Kiwi, (oiseaux), chez nous en corse nous avons également des kiwis, mais ils ont une autre apparence petit rond vert et bourrés de vitamine.

you got me fooled with this one. i remember visiting pitch dark kiwi house in Orana wild life park and I was wonder how come you caught in bright day light. It is indeed looking real.
