It's Icarus, flying too close to the sun with his wings of wax and feathers. Love that it's portrayed by a kiwi as they are flightless birds.

Icarus might fall more into the myth category, but he is a famous character from literature.

Ahhh! I love this one! Not only is it Icarus flying too close to the sun (I got that right away) but it's also the perfect explanation for why the Kiwi is extinct.

Um, the kiwi is not extinct. Perhaps you meant why the kiwi can't fly?
