This is a Kaka, seen in this case at Zealandia in Wellington, an incredible ecosanctuary where native birds and animals are protected from predators. The birds are free to come and go and Kaka can be seen around Wellington incline of the house where I was staying. Amazing intelligent parrots!
A different theme today, one of my colleagues at work works with Raptor Rescue and today Eva the Australasian Harrier Hawk was brought in, unfortunately Eva is blind in one eye and can’t live in the wild, instead she helps with advocacy for protecting these amazing birds. I took a few quick shots with my 50mm lens which is all I had with me!
More cuteness with birds on Quail Island yesterday, a lovely place to visit.
