Same thing only more pictures (I don't know about you, but I always enjoy looking at pictures of birds... especially babies!).

I watched a video where a kakapo decided to "shag" the camera man's bald head.

A very nice and quite comprehensive 'story' of the effort to save the kakapos from extinction.

I don't know why I remembered that the camera man was bald.

That is so funny that the rare parrot had no fear of men and even tried to mate with one.
