Artist's Description

While taking school kids on a ski trip I was delighted to find several Keas hanging around in the car park. They are truly magnificent birds, and wonderful to observe in the wild.
Human development in the alpine zone has reduced the sources of natural foods availalbe to kea. No wonder they find our fat-laden human foods so inviting! However, human foods encourage kea to come into closer contact with humans, often resulting in mischievous behaviour. Feeding young kea also discourages them from looking for and learning about natural foods, and it can make them dependent on human scraps. Kea, like many other native birds, have suffered from predation by cats, stoats, ferrets and possums. Keas are particularly vulnerable to predation because they nest in holes in the ground that are easy to find and easy to get in to.
