Spaghetti and Kiwi Birds

We are sitting eating a load of spaghetti looking out our DOC "blind" to see Kiwi birds come onto the lawn.  We have been told it's common although they are so rare now.  We are at a place where a man had the foresight to gift to the government 450 hectares of ancient Kauri forest.  Today was sunny and pretty simple ride of 40km.  Ugh. Two stinky vans are scaring the birds away...don't they realize how rare it is to see a kiwi? Well I guess they've already seen a kiwi at Stewart Island - they are from the Czech Republic on working visa - who needs to see another Kiwi?  Nah na na nah naaah!!!
