These guys aren't afraid of people and so let me get quite close for this photograph. Estimates say there about 5000 keas in all of New Zealand. They are specific only to one part of the mountain on the south island and their habitat is very well protected lest I get all these howls of "Leave that bird alone you stupid tramping human with your camera!"

Looks to me like he's thinking, "Come a little closer, stupid human... Notice my rather large beak? The better to EAT you with!"

What a lovely photo! I've longed to see those in real life since I read Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams. Most cool!
