Eh, it's a living.

Be careful, or it will have sex with the back of your head.
Why do parrots like doing that so much? Why heads?
As a guess: maybe they see a human head as a face on one side and tail feathers hanging down on the other side? So basically a big distorted bird.

....it's a flightless bird whose favorite food is up in the trees
I'm calling shenanigans on reality.

These animals are rare for a very good reason. However we're going to hilariously great lengths to keep them alive, including moving the entire population to remote islands and wiping out all the predators on the islands that we can. Then when the rats couldn't be controlled, we installed laser-guided motion sensing cameras on each nest, that flash and bang to scare away rats that want to eat the eggs. Also a special diet was developed to speed up their breeding cycle because otherwise they only bred when a particular plant had fruit and etc etc.
For all this effort the number of parrots has increased from 80 to about 130 in the last 20 years, so progress!
Probably the single greatest thing any kakapo did to insure its species' survival was to fuck Stephen Fry's friend's head. Good going you little pervert, you may have given your people a chance.

Needs a "Last Chance to See" tag. If y'all don't know, "Last Chance to See" is a Douglas Adams book where the lucky bastard toured the world visiting some of the most endangered animals around. The kakapo is a highlight. Great book all around, though.

Other than being nocturnal, is there any reason these aren't bred as pets? The cuteness of an owl minus the talons!
