Kakapo parrots from New Zealand, an endangered bird that can weigh up to five kilos, are killed by a fungal infection.

According to the Auckland Zoo, seven chubby chicks died as a result of Aspergillosis, which threatens the respiratory system and spreads during the parrot's breeding season.

The last victim is Nora 1-A-2019, a lovely 100-day old bird.

"To date, aspergillosis has been officially diagnosed in 16 birds. So it's very unlikely that Nora-1-A-2019 will be the last chick we've lost, "the zoo posted on Facebook.

The Kakapos, who are unable to fly, can live up to 90 years.
