      I think I have one of these in brown somewhere. It's so much better in green!

      What a unique piece, don’t see glass kiwis everyday :). Nice addition to your collection, and I like the speckled, swirly design of it.

      Now that's not a bird I was expecting you to have Jenni, but then again, you DO happen to have just about every bird in existence so it's not surprising that you have a kiwi! :P
      Her colour is gorgeous- so vivid emerald and very fitting for this little bird, (don't they live in lush green landscapes?!)

      Don't see too many kiwis around here, but I really love this!!!

      Scott thank you for your super praise for this kiwi bird, it was made in other colors but to me none were prettier than this speckled glass fellow

      Thanks Walking for your awesome comment, I'm with you this was a very cool find, love to get an unusual animal

      Hi Karen, fantastic to see you! Thanks so much for your fantastic comment, I hope you will show your brown kiwi someday, being its natural color it must make it look very realistic. Wondering if you have actually seen real kiwi birds living so close to NZ, they look so cute

      Thanks MrsT for your great comment, you are so right this is a rare glass bird and I love that it was made in its home country New Zealand. I'm very happy to welcome him into my collection :)

      Thank you kivatinitz for your lovely compliment, I am delighted that you found this bird beautiful

      Right Lauren, it's a surprising bird for me because the kiwi is only found in New Zealand, and just happened upon this glass one & fell in love with it. As these birds are from NZ there are lush habitats there, though I have read they are primarily ground foragers. I am always so happy to find a different glass animal to share here, esp on I've never seen in real life. Thank you for your terrific comment

      It's so true vintagelamp, I have not even seen the kiwi bird in zoos and I've visited several across the country, and it's such a cute animal with that long pointy nose! Glad you loved it & thank you for your wonderful perceptive comment

      Phil thanks so much for your kind praise for this kiwi bird, the streaks certainly do make this fellow come alive!
