Kiwi that flew???? NEW
by: Suzy

I am not sure if my original question showed up. This bird looked exactly like a Kiwi except it FLEW. I only saw it from the back at first. It was larger in size. I thought at first it was a baby chicken hawk...its feathers were more downy looking. All fluffed out. No feather pattern, no tail, very round. The head was not visible from behind, sunk down low. Then it turn around and its bill was long and slender. Short legs. Three talons, I think. Not webbed. When my daughter I looked it up, for she thought it looked like a kiwi as well, that is exactly what the bird looked like, but they do not fly, sooooo????? What on earth could it be. We only stood 15 feet away max.
