Cheeky Kea Parrot

Cheeky Kea Parrot

New Zealand is a bird fancier's paradise. The Kea parrot is a native species found on the South Island and nowhere else on earth. The Kea is very intelligent and has the curiousity of a cat. This one came up to us and inspected us when we stopped at a restaurant on the way to Greymouth. He flew into the store and tried to steal a candy bar! You have to watch your car wiper blades as they like to pull those off with their sizeable beaks. Cheeky is an appropriate adjective.
