About the Little Spotted Kiwi/ Kiwi Pukupuku
Kiwi pukupuku are quite vocal. You will occasionally hear them send out a call to mark their territory and to maintain contact with partners. When in contact with their mate, the pairs will often duet. However, they can be fierce with rivals for territory and will fight with their sharp claws, resulting in a cloud of feathers on the ground.
