Brazen Parrots

New Zealand Parrot

These brazen guys can do serious damage to the tops and hoods of cars.  We saw several of them in a parking lot on our way to Milford Sound.  They are totally unafraid of humans.  One tourist was feeding them out of her hand (bad tourist!).
Update:  My BBs Diane and Robin (Blogging Buddies), commented that these destroyers of cars are called KEA, and they particularly enjoy ripping off rubber, like around windows, doors windshield wipers, etc. (bad kea!)
