The largest penguin ever known once roamed the shores of New Zealand, and there were many other strange bird species which soared the skies or stalked the land; false-toothed pelicans, eleven moa species including the tallest bird known, giant flightless geese and coots, the largest eagle known, adzebills, owlet-night jars and the world's only flightless perching bird. These weird and wonderful birds are now extinct. Some disappeared in the geologically distant past, but most were eliminated during the last 1,000 years, unable to withstand the impact of humans on these islands.
