New Zealand, South Island-229

The beautiful and mischevious Kea which are one of the very few Alpine Parrots and are found only in the South Island of New Zealand. They are extremely intelligent and very mischeveous (one kept pecking the rubber seal of the sunroof of our campervan!). They have spectacular colouring of the underside of the wings. They have a very strange screeching call too
