Sort of blends right in. It would be hard to see these. Kakapo: rare bird of NZ. There are only 62 left in existence. The name comes from the native Maori language, meaning “night parrot.”
The kakapo is a large, flightless parrot native to New Zealand. Sadly, today these beautiful birds are incredibly endangered and there are only 126 left in the wild. Researchers found that about 900 years ago kakapos ate large amounts of pollen from a root parasite known as "Hades flower". Today, that plant is also incredibly rare and the two organisms are not found together, which suggests a rather interesting conservation link - was the kakapo responsible for pollinating the Hades flower?
**Kakapo (which is flightless) - One of the rarest birds in the world and it comes from New Zealand's. Only 124 of these parrots remain in the wild—the species has been largely wiped out by the introduction of predatory mammals such as feral cats.

Poupa Hoopoe - The Hoopoe /ˈhuːpuː/ (Upupa epops) is a colourful bird that is found across Afro-Eurasia, notable for its distinctive 'crown' of feathers. It is the only extant species in the family Upupidae. One insular species, the Saint Helena Hoopoe, is extinct, and the Madagascar subspecies of the Hoopoe is sometimes elevated to a full species. Like the Latin name upupa, the English name is an onomatopoeic form which imitates the cry of the bird.
