Kea on Avalanche Peak
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The kea is an interesting native wild bird in New Zealand. It is very inquisitive, and not at all afraid of people. This one visited us right on the summit of Avalanche Peak, no doubt expecting us to leave something of interest. Don't be surprised if it flies off with your belongings if you leave them unattended for a moment!
On a different occasion, down in the valley, I saw another one ripping apart the rubber seal around a car window ...
