My brother with a Kaka on his head

We spent the day on Kapiti Island with my brothers family and the Science faculty at WHS. It's an 8km long island about 5km off the Kapiti coast. It's also a nature reserve where they have eradicated all pests such as rodents and possums. So there are many rare birds to be seen. The Kaka is a native NZ parrot that is endangered. They are rather cheeky, and come looking for food when the tourists visit.
lucky you visiting there

Thats a special island to tour - you have to go on a tour to do this, don't you! That kaka is similar to the pesky kea but the latter is only found in the South island amazingly!

I hope the Kaka kept his claws to himself.. perhaps he was after the 'Jet planes...
