Beware The Bored Bird

13 November 2015

When highly intelligent birds are bored, watch out!

Keas (Nestor notabilis) are wild parrots on the South Island of New Zealand who love to explore and use their sharp beaks to open whatever they find. They’re not kept as pets because they literally will take your house apart.

Watch them take apart the police car.

This article was spawned by Ted Floyd’s mention of keas and Jack Solomon’s post of the police car video on Facebook. Thanks!

  1. They are known to steal wiper blades from cars. One tried to board our tour bus near Milford Sound, New Zealand. Who knows what he could have done to the inside!
