Yellow-crowned Parakeet / Kakariki (Cyanoramphus auriceps, Psittacidae: Parrots) North Island, New Zealand

The Yellow-crowned Parakeet is a small parrot endemic to New Zealand, it is uncommon and restricted to a few forested areas. In the North Island, where these birds were filmed, it is found only in extensive native forested areas in the centre of the island plus a few offshore islands. Unlike its close relation the Red-crowned Parakeet, this bird sticks to the canopy of tall trees where it can be difficult to get a clear view of, leave alone film!
