New Zealand's famous mountain parrot. These audacious birds often live around the snowline, apparently knowing no cold or fear. Easily approached and fed, they eat all kinds of things - especially bright, shiny, chewy, or colorful objects..... that may be attached to your car. Although amusing, they are potentially destructive and dangerous - anything could get pecked, including eyes (colourful and shiny).
This postcard was postmarked in 2017 with a bird stamp.
