$1.20 'Brown Kiwi' gummed stamp.
The brown kiwi is the species many New Zealanders think of when kiwi are talked about. Familiar to communities in northern parts of the North Island, it is also the species most commonly seen in captivity. The brown kiwi usually lays two eggs a clutch, and lays one to two clutches a year, as opposed to the more usual one egg per clutch in other species. Sadly, predators and loss of habitat undo much of this good reproductive work.
