Kiwi mai i Te Ika-a-Māui (2 o 2)

Kiwi mai i Te Ika-a-Māui

Tangohia ai te ingoa o te manu nei te kiwi hei ingoa mō ngā tāngata o Aotearoa, ahakoa te mea ko te nuinga o ngā tāngata o Aotearoa kāore anō kia kite ā-kanohi i tēnei manu. He manu tawhito tēnei, he uri nō te ostrich o Āwherika me te emu o te tonga o Amerika, tae atu ki te moa. kāore tēnei manu e rere, he rite ōna huruhuru ki makawe, he pāhau roa, he haere pō. Ka taea e ngā kiwi te ātete i te toriura me te ngeru, engari anō te kurī. He ngāwari ki te toriura me te ngeru te patu i te pīpī a te kiwi; ko te whakapae, koinei te take nui kei te iti haere tō rātou rahi.
