Kea's are cheeky, cute but beware....they will pull the rubber off car doors and wipers and love shiny things so watch your keys! The Homer Tunnel on the way to Milford Sound is the best place to get up close and personal with these delightful birds....my favorite

Kea bird NZ
New Zealand Kea photographs and about. The Kea is about the size of a sulphur Crested Cockatoo, up to 50cm. There's not much difference visually between the male and female except the male generally has a more curved beak. The young Kea has a pale yellow lower mandible and cere. They are related to the kaka (Nestor meridionalis)
