Kaki - Black Stilt
Kaki are found in braided riverbeds, side streams, swamps and irrigated paddocks if there is good feed available. Most riverbed birds migrate to coastal areas in winter, but kaki usually remain in the Mackenzie Basin despite parts of their habitat freezing over.
Kaki have been intensively managed since 1981 when their population declined to a low of just 23 birds.
