K is for kaka.
- The kākā is a large forest parrot found on the North Island, South Island and Stewart Island. With between 1,000 and 5,000 remaining, they are considered nationally vulnerable.
- Generally considered diurnal, they are also active in a full moon or on fine weather evenings.
- Often heard before they are seen, they make a rather screechy sound which you can hear here.
