Kea

 

Keas belong to the parrot family.

A kea has a hooked beak and orange, yellow, green and brown feathers. They have red under their wings and they have two feet.

Keas live in the South Island high country from Marlborough and Nelson to Fiordland.

Keas hook their feet on to the branch and they eat carrots and broccoli, apples and oranges. Keas lay eggs that are too big for their size.

Keas scratch their head feathers with their feet.
