New Zealand facts & history in brief               New Zealand Map


is a large New Zealand native parrot, mainly green and scarlet under the wings.
Mostly found in the South Island mountains, nests in rock crevices or hollow logs and have very powerful beak and claws.
Farmers used to hunt them in fear of killing sheep, but lately acknowledged that it sometimes feeds on dead carcasses.
Known to attack and damage the rubber parts on cars.
I can confirm that, my windscreen seals and wing mirrors were damaged by them in Arthur's Pass in 1980.
