Thanks for the info Andy...as I looked closer I realized this was likely to be a park out in the middle of nowhere.....

Beautiful bird.

You wouldn't find any of these in a city, Apple. They're often seen around cars as they're interested in new things and people. Guaranteed, this would either be in a car park or by the side of the road but otherwise in the middle of nowhere. You do get them in a few villages, but nowhere with more than 1,000 people. They live in alpine areas, though they do like rummaging around in bins and the like.
