New Zealand's bird mascot, the kiwi, is something of an adorable mistake. Its round little body, spindly legs and COMPLETE INABILITY TO FLY are an evolutionary disadvantage, to say the least. And no bird knows that better than the little guy in this video.

Piwi the Kiwi was born emaciated and with two broken legs, and it looked like he wasn't going to make it. But! He endured months of rehabilitative physical therapy -- including birdie blood transfusions -- and is now back on his wobbly two feet. Part of his physical therapy regiment? Why, long walks on the treadmill, of course. Enjoy!
