The Kakapo (Strigops habroptila) - kaka means parrot and po means night - is a cheeky and inquisitive bird native only to New Zealand. Sinbad the Kakapo lives on Codfish Island; when a friend was there at night, he climbed onto her head to check her out, then perched on her foot and finally performed a dance. This curiosity and lack of fear is part of the reason they are critically endangered. But all is not lost: there are now 154 birds on record, up from a low of 51 in 1995.
