Kea Parrot from New Zealand

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.
