The Mountain Parrot is a Kea. It is a New Zealand native bird. It is called a clown bird. The Kea is related to the kaka.
The back of a kea’s wings are green and at the front it has got orange.
Between 1,000 and 5,000 Kea live in the wild on the western side of the Southern Alps, Kaikoura ranges.

Keas are one of the most interesting birds in the world. It is our funny, naughty native parrot.
