Entries in Nestor meridionalis - Kaka (28)
"We have some quite cheeky kaka who are nesting and they're begging for food at the cafe," manager Helen Evans-Tickner said. "They are getting a little bit overzealous."
The Dominion Post has been told of a cafe worker and a child being bitten by the native parrots recently. Ms Evans-Tickner said they sometimes nipped at staff, but she had not heard of bitten customers.
Conflict! Sounds like I’ll need my foreign correspondent’s flak jacket for this one. But the set-up looks friendly enough. (Like many dispatches from the front line, this is to be conducted over drinks and nibbles in a neighbourhood watering-hole, though I can hear nearby skrarks and wibbles from a group of young larrikin green-banders just outside). Although it’s full moon, I stick to just one sugar water and a few almonds.
