All of thZese photos of birds were taken at the Auckland Zoo.
I hope to go again soon, if you join the Zoo and pay a years membership every time you go you get in free.
I hope to go to other places and see New Zealand birds…but one day at a time..
The Thumbnail is the Kaka parrot that lives somewhere in the South Island and at the moment, the Auckland Zoo is the only place I can see it, but hopefully one day next year may get the opportunity to visit the South Island.
Yes, these are New Zealand parrots that live in the South Island. Another reason to visit.
Be careful if you see these, they destroy the metal on cars or vehicles and also pinch the food from inside tramping packs of trampers...They have a reputation and yes, they also bite.
Hence the farmers often shot them as they kill sheep.
