Kea (Nestor nobilis) are known as the world’s only alpine parrots and are found only on the South Island of New Zealand. These birds are known for two major characteristics: high intelligence and curiosity. They can be rather pesky in their interactions with humans and have been called “the clown of the mountains.” (Definition via Wikipedia.)
