E is for endangered.
- Now classified as critically endangered, the takahe were once thought of as extinct until they were rediscovered in the Murchison Mountains (Fiordland) on the South Island in 1948.
- Takahe are flightless birds found only in New Zealand. They display their wings during courtship or as a show of aggression.
- Takahe are similar in size to large hen.
- They have an interesting song, which you can hear here.
