New Zealand Kea

By dales
A pic from a few years ago on a trip in the New Zealand south island , stopped at at a viewing spot driving through the mountains and this very cheeky Kea tracked all over our rental car and tried to destroy the wipers such a fascinating creature.

Thanks to all for views , votes , comments and UA's on my previous uploads all extremely appreciated.
Have been away for a bit with an extended long weekend taken off for the Queens birthday holiday here in Victoria.
