Kea – NZ’s alpine parrot

One of the highlights of a day out in the hills, is spotting the birdlife. The kea is the world’s only alpine parrot and has a well-earned reputation for its cheek and intelligence. When out walking, its eerie call in the misty high crags, sends shivers down the spine. Then, next thing you know at a rest stop, these inquisitive birds will be hopping around your pack and poking at any objects left lying around.
