2020 Update: The second year running the Kaka have turned up. In 2019 it was two in Sept / Oct but this year they have turned up much earlier arriving in April with four still hanging about three months later.
A juvenile Kaka made himself resident at Whiriwhiri last month. The local bird population were a little bemused by this character, both the starlings and tui tried to suggest he move on but the little guy had none of it.
A few weeks later he found a mate and they’ve been entertaining each other ever since. We suspect they’re juveniles, most probably on a visit from the gulf islands.
