Do You Give Up Yet!!! - Kaka Parrot - Stewart Island by 


Stewart Island was an amazing experience… the Kaka Parrot provided early morning and evening entertainment. They kept us entertained till 10pm at night….They are just like little 2 year olds, tumbling, jumping, yelling, play fighting and generally having fun. They are real characters and a joy to watch. A short youtube clip on the Kaka having fun…

FEATURED: GEMS, TELL IT LIKE IT IS, THE WONDER OF WINGS, SELF TAUGHT PHOTOGRAPHERS, FURY FRIENDS FEATURES
The Kaka is a forest parrot endemic to New Zealand. The population is rapidly declining. In Oban on Stewart Island there is a thriving population. It is pleasure to see them playing in trees and shrubs around township.They are generally brownish-green in colour with some yellowish-red to their face and under parts. They can be heard screeching as they fly through the tree tops.
There are 2 subspecies of Kaka. The North Island Kaka (Nestor meridionalis septentrionalis) & The South Island Kaka (Nestor meridionalis meridionalis).
Although considered common on some Islands both parrot subspecies are threatened. Populations of both subspecies remain in native forest on the North and South Islands. Greater numbers survive on Islands around the mainland. This includes Great Barrier Island in the north and Stewart Island in the south. The Kaka bird is protected under NZ law.

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.
