I was just dying to use the dead parrot sketch somehow to illustrate the headline, but failed. Feel free to try.
The Kakapo (Strigops habroptilus) is a very unique parrot. It’s nocturnal, polygynous (many parrots are monogamous) and, most intriguingly, it’s flightless. That’s right, just like the extinct Dodo, the ostrich and the kiwi birds, Kakapo parrots are flightless – they got the bones, feathers and muscles for flight, but their ability to fly is gone.
