Ōhonu – youngest of the season
Ōhonu’s parents are Jethro and Magdalena, who live above Roa. Ōhonu weighed just under 297 grams at hatch, and grew to 590 grams before being released into the sanctuary on 24 March 2021. Ōhonu and Rehutai are only 6 days apart in age, so they were able to share a pen at Willowbank, and travelled to the crèche together. They continued to hang out together quite a bit after release, and we still can’t really tell them apart on video footage!
Hatch Date: 22 January 2021
Species: Roroa – Great Spotted Kiwi
