Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A small flightless green parrot. It is nocturnal and counts itself among the longest-lived birds.

A lone kakapo appears occasionally in any woodland biome and meanders around adorably. Kakapos can be captured to produce some meager quantity of eggs, which is likely the most suitable use for them as tearing the adorable thing apart only provides enough meat to fill up six round little dwarves for a season. Kakapos can live up to a maximum age of 120 years. Dwarves may like kakapos for their longevity, their flightlessness or their booming calls.

Kakapos are also known to mate with humans given the chance : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T1vfsHYiKY
