New Zealand Kea

Kea is a native parrot of New Zealand, live in remote high country. Going from a South Island town - Wanaka, we drove for 20 km on sealed road, then 35 km of unsealed road, crossed 8 fords, then walked for about 2 hours, finally I had the fortune of seeing them.

They are not shy and would come very close to visitors, presumably wanting some food.

Standing still they are not particularly pretty.

Once they spread their wings, the colours are quite amazing
