Keas Parrot

Keas parrots are the only parrots to live in the mountains, they even nest in the snow. They are extremely intelligent birds and have a large curved beak. Sometime in the past the Keas got into trouble with farmers, as the Keas would get on the backs of sheep and rip at the skin to get at the fat under it Many sheep would die from their injuries, so the farmers would kill the Keas. Today it is illegal to kill the Keas as they are fully protected and their are around 5000 keas left.
