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.

Description from Wikipedia

Parrots, also known as psittacines /ˈsɪtəsaɪnz/, are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions. The order is subdivided into three superfamilies: the Psittacoidea ('true' parrots), the Cacatuoidea (cockatoos) and the Strigopoidea (New Zealand parrots). Parrots have a generally pantropical distribution with several species inhabiting temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere as well. The greatest diversity of parrots is in South America...
