I Have A Snazzy Yellow & Red Cap! - Kakariki - NZ by 


A Closer look at the beautiful New Zealand Kakariki.
The Kākārikis or New Zealand parakeets are the most common species of parakeet in the genus Cyanoramphus, family Psittacidae.
The birds’ Māori name Kākāriki, which is the most commonly used, means “green” – in reference to its predominantly green plumage.
The Kakarikis are brightly colored parakeets that are found on many island groups in the South Pacific region. Unfortunately, they have suffered badly from habitat loss, alien (introduced) predators and possibly also exotic diseases.
They are native to New Zealand, and have become endangered as a result of habitat destruction following European settlement and nest predation by introduced species of mammal. Scarce on the mainland, kākāriki have survived well on outlying islands, and also through breeding in captivity since they make good pets. A license from the New Zealand Department of Conservation is now required to breed them in captivity.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
