New Zealand birds are confusing! Both the Maori and Western names are commonly used, so you typically have to learn two common names for every species. Furthermore the Maori names all sound the same to me, and they all seem to start with the letter K.
Case in point - the birds featured in this illustration are the: Kakapo, Kakarikis, Kokako, Kaka, Kaki, Kiwi, Kea, Karearea, and Kereru.
I've been joking for a while that I should make an ABC's of native New Zealand birds. The book would consist of three pages: one blank page labeled A-J, then an overpopulated K page, and finally another blank page labeled L-Z. "New Zealand birding made easy!"
Crazy as it seems, this isn't even all of the K birds either. There are a lot that I didn't include.
