Description

Kaka with leg bands (rings) hanging upside down, feeding. I initially thought it was feeding from the flowers, but now think it was probably feeding on tree fuchsia fruit. But it seemed to be using it's tongue rather than beak to do it. Can't really make out the bands on both legs, but the right leg seems to be pale-green/green. All photos are frame grabs from a shaky video.
