kiwi /╦łki:wi:/  

(countable noun) Usage note: This is the usual term used by all speakers.

A small New Zealand bird, with a long beak, that cannot fly; about the same size as a hen.

Example: You'd kick yourself for ever if you missed out on seeing a wild kiwi, so perhaps you should visit the Aroha Island ecological centre to see how the little birds are being protected  (http://www.theage.com.au/travel/pleasure-principle-20081113-63qa.html)
