Interesting, don't you think?
Kiwis are actually very tough little birds for their size, and highly territorial. They can fight off animals up to cat size, but not dogs. The males are meant to stay at home guarding the egg(s) while the females wander off foraging. But unfortunately kiwi males are notoriously bad dads, resulting in eggs in empty nests being eaten by rats and the like. Combine that with the females laying only two eggs per season (if they're lucky), and it's no wonder even the biggest species (Brown Kiwi - may have been renamed recently) is in trouble. Interestingly kiwi birds thrive in pine forests - plenty of small insects for them to eat and few predators to eat their eggs.
