    I don’t think so. The Kiwi Bird, found in New Zealand, is almost wingless, but it does have tiny, useless wing about two inches long.

    The Kiwi’s wings are so small that the bird is commonly known as the “wingless bird,” but as sfincher said, they are indeed not wingless. Of course, there are quite a number of flightless birds (ostriches, emus, penguins, etc.), but they still have vestigial wings.

    Kiwi has unnoticeable short wings that are only 5cm in length and are hidden under its feathers. You can read more interesting kiwi bird facts at bird flight.

    The extinct moa was a wingless bird once found in New Zealand. This is apparently the only known wingless bird to date and became extinct after being over-hunted by the Maori people in the 1500s.
