Hello everyone,

i just published a piece on my Medium site that was originally published in
BirdLife magazine a month ago. (I've not seen their published version, but
this piece has been updated and has different images.) You may know that
most of my written material is republished on Medium, where there are no
subscriptions (although donations are happily accepted), no paywalls, and
no ads.


The forested mountains of New Zealand’s South Island are home to that
famous mischievous alpine parrot, the Kea. But this inquisitiveness, along
with predation by invasive mammals and feeding junk food by tourists, is
contributing to the species’ ongoing decline: Kea have just been up-listed
to Endangered
