If you're in Southland, you may be lucky enough to see ten of this year's kākāpō chicks in a temporary Department of Conservation facility in Invercargill.
The chicks are cared for 24/7 at the facility, and their presence provides a rare opportunity to see real kākāpō , says kākāpō advocacy ranger Julie Futter.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for members of the public to view one of the world's rarest birds before the chicks are returned to their predator free sanctuaries."
Public viewing sessions are being held throughout May on the weekend.

Bookings will be taken for one-hour time slots, in groups of ten people. Tickets are $2, and will be donated to the Kākāpō Recovery Programme.
In the first weekend of public viewings, 370 people visited the kākāpō chicks.
Greater breeding efforts this season have been due to a "great abundance" in rimu fruit and beech seed.
On May 4, the Kākāpō Recovery said on Facebook that three chicks have fledged from their nests on Anchor Island in Fiordland.
