Kea (Nestor Notabilis)
Alpine/sub-alpine scree/scrub etc.
The wonderful Kea, the Alpine Parrot of New Zealand. The first photo is of a fledgling that we caught and banded as part of population research. The second is of an adult seen from a distance which has already been tagged and banded. Third is a silhouetted Kea against the sky.
