Bird Figurine Series - # 38

  In that Janine and I have never travelled abroad we often jokingly called ourselves 'kiwi birds.' The kiwi is the national bird of New Zealand and cannot fly. Many years ago Janine got this wooden kiwi from one of her pen-pals. If I recall correctly it was carved by her pen-pal's father.
