The Antipodes parakeet is a beautiful, brightly coloured bird that is found in New Zealand. They are about 25 cm long and have a green and yellow body, with a blue head. They are very social birds, and live in flocks of up to 100 birds.
Their habitat is in the forests and woodlands of New Zealand, where they feed on insects, berries, nectar and seeds. They are known for their loud screeching call, which can be heard from some distance away.
Antipodes parakeets are considered to be endangered, as there are thought to be only a few thousand left in the wild. This is mainly due to predation by introduced pests such as stoats and cats, as well as loss of habitat.
