Kaka, the Brown or Bush Parrot


Kapiti Island Nature Reserve, Waikanae Estuary Scientific Reserve on the adjacent mainland shore and the Kapiti Marine Reserve linking the two, form a rare and special part of New Zealand. Together they create a very rare continuum of protected land, sea and estuary habitats. Kapiti Island is some 30 kilometres north of Wellington city. For those interested in birds, Kapiti Island offers some special experiences. During the early and late summer months the Kaka, the bush parrot, frequents the area. They are close relatives of the South Island mountain parrot, the Kea, and, as with the Kea, their numbers in the wild are declining. A feeding station near the ranger's house on the island enables visitors to observe Kaka at close quarters. Birds will often land on visitors' heads and shoulders.Lens: 100-300mm f/4-4Focal Length: 240mmCopyright Smileypics Limited http://www.smileypics.co.nz
