    I enjoyed the post and pics. Quite an effort.......

    Question: What are 'keas' and what's to be hesitant about?

    That was a strange looking bird. It looked like it didn't have much respect for the folks.......

    Good post.

    The Kea is a native parrot, and they are very inquisitive, and will peck and destroy pretty much anything. They love to peel the rubber seals off car windscreens, windscreen wipers, shred nylon tents etc.

    I find the lingo interesting as used to describe different parts of a car around the world!

    The pictures are beautiful.

    Why is the water that color? Algae?

    "Why is the water that color?"

    It is minerals leached from the rocks. You see it a lot around glaciers.
