K is for Kakapo

K is for Kakapo.  When I got my assignment for this entry into Animal Alphabets, I was confused.  Those Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mixes are endangered species?  Obviously I never heard of a Kakapo.  This flightless, nocturnal bird is also called a “Owl Parrot“.  Sadly this New Zealand native’s population as of 2016 is down to 154 known adults.
