Female North Island brown kiwi chick hatched on January 12 at the Toledo Zoo. This is a first for the Zoo's Avian Breeding Center (ABC), an off-exhibit facility dedicated to breeding rare and endangered birds. Zoo staff is hand-rearing the chick, which as a precocial species was relatively mature and mobile soon after hatching.  PHOTO COURTESY OF TOLEDO ZOO
