Friend was recently telling me about a trip to new Zealand and a Kea bird there that is such a character. Apparently they destroy your cars, are known to be hooligans in your yards, attacking garden gnomes, eating kids plastic toys etc and actually playing with the toys for fun. As Ive never seen oneI had to look up online to get these shots so they are NOT my photosand they do look a very cute bird even if they are hooligans:-)I'd love the chance to film them.

Heres one attacking a rental car



and it seems they dont have a lot of fear of humans so they are an attraction over in new Zealand

An interesting bird. Looks like some kind of Parrot that decided it wasn't macho to wear colors....

I started a thread just for you, it's already on the second page:
