Meet the Kea

In a recent trip to New Zealand we were equally entertained and harassed by the local Kea population on the road through to Milford Sound. These are a playful and intelligent parrot of New Zealand's alpine regions. These curious birds are known for their mischievous behavior and their ability to solve problems, including a basic understanding of probability! If you're interested check out this video of Keas making some complex decision making not seen in many other species.

In this photo, you can see the striking colours of the Kea's feathers. Keep an eye out for these fascinating and naughty guys if venturing into New Zealand's mountains!
