A rare bird chick has received lifesaving surgery at a veterinary hospital in a risky first-of-its-kind procedure.

Surgeons at Massey University Wildbase Hospital in New Zealand treated the 56-day-old kakapo chick, known as Espy 1B, to repair a hole in its skull that had been present since birth.

Kakapos are a species of large, flightless, nocturnal parrots that live on the ground and are found only in New Zealand. They are critically endangered, with only 144 known kakapos remaining, all of which are named.
