It is New Zealand's night parrot, known by its Maori name as Kakapo. They are the strangest of birds, having lost the ability to fly because it had no predators. That was until the Polynesians and Europeans arrived and presto, it had predators such as rats, cats and stoats.
A kakapo took rather a fancy to the head of zoologist Mark Carwardine, in the company of Stephen Fry.
