Alway a great sight to see these amazing birds at Monkey Creek on the way to Milford Sound on our Private Tour guests love them.The New Zealand Alpine Parrot the Kea is one of the most beautiful birds in NZ and there aren’t many left.They are large olive-green parrot with orange underwings and rump, a slender grey-black bill, and blue-green iridescence on the primary flight feathers. Females are 20% lighter than males with a shorter bill, and juveniles (which this one is)have a yellow cere, lower mandible and eyelids, which fade to grey as the bird matures.
Also proud to have the Kea as our logo of Alpine Adventures. 👉Link to donate https://www.keaconservation.co.nz
