The Parrot Place in Kerikeri was one of our destinations on our holiday. We had been there before but it's too much fun to pass up. This king parrot on my neck (below) never stopped nibbling on my hair and skin--weird but nice!
There is a walk-through aviary that has lots of pretty and friendly birds.
This parrot loves attention and when he wasn't the center of the universe, he would hang upside down by one talon to get it.
This is Elmo, the mascot of the Parrot Place. He can't fly but he loves it when you hold him up high.
