$2.40 Little Spotted Kiwi gummed stamp.

Little spotted kiwi is the smallest of the five kiwi species. The majority can be found on Kapiti Island, a bird sanctuary off the west coast of the North Island. Through successful translocations, little spotted kiwi are also now found on several other predator-free offshore islands, and in Auckland’s Shakespear Sanctuary and in Wellington's Zealandia Sanctuary. Male calls are heard more often than females', but sometimes a male and female pair can be heard calling back and forth in duet.
