New Zealand, Hanging Birds
DescriptionThis a New Zealand and native parakeet. It use to fly in large flocks around the country and often caused havoc in orchids. They are considered an 'at risk' native. This is mainly due to introduced pests, however in the1880's large flocks were shot by settlers. Currently the population is concentrated mainly on pest free islands around the country.
There is a mountain in the lower North Island name Paekakariki.
The kakariki won Bird of the Year in 2010. Voting is in apx October/November every year and is always an exciting and heavily competed contest.
The Kakariki sparkly decoration was introduced in 2018.
This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, beads and coloured metallic threads. It is nice and light for posting. If you need to send them internationally we can do it for you. Handy information - The cost to send up to 5x NZ Bird sparkly decorations to the same international address is the same as sending 1x.
