First Kakapo Chicks of 2011 Boost Numbers to 123

Great news from TVNZ...
The first kakapo chicks of the season have hatched with three new arrivals bringing the total population of the critically endangered parrot to 123.
It is hoped 11 eggs will hatch this season, this is lower than past seasons because of the low number of rimu fruit available for the birds to eat.
