The last few evenings around dusk we've been watching Kaka in our neighbour's apple trees.  The Kaka is a New Zealand native parrot and an adult can be up to 44cm in length.

I tried taking photos - they aren't too good given the really low light, the Kakas colouring and that they don't stay still for very long.

Last night there were 7-8 feasting on the apples.

Suburban Wellington has relatively large numbers of native birds thanks to Zealandia (formerly Karori Sanctuary) and Otari Wilton Bush

We've only started noticing the Kakas in the past year or so. These recent visits being the most we've seen.
