Papagai Kaka Kea

The Red-crowned parakeet is characterised by its bright green plumage and the red pattern on its head. It is also widely known by its Māori name of kākāriki.

The Kaka or forest-parrot is the second still living type of the Nestor-parrots beside the Kea today. With the color of the plumage, brown tones prevail at the neck, at the back, on the breast and on the upper side of the wings.

The Kea's notorious urge to explore and manipulate makes this bird both a pest for residents and an attraction for tourists. Called "the clown of the mountains". It will investigate backpacks, boots, skis, snowboards, and even cars (most commonly the rubber areas e.g. car antennas).
