Beware of these hungry parrots!

Kea is the world’s only alpine parrot, found in the mountain areas of South Island. Racuouc cries of “keeeaa” often give away the presence of these highly social and inquisitive birds.

While I was happily enjoying my sandwhiches in the car with my windown wind down, the kea flew next to me on the side mirror.

I was so afraid that I quickly wind up the window. Got to take some pictures of those naughty cheeky fellows.

A tour bus passed by and one of them started to feed the Kea with apple. Soon a whole group of them were beside our car.

When the tour group left, the Kea were back looking at me munching my sandwhices. I felt so threathen by them. Thank God my window is wind up and I can enjoy eating in peace.
