Māori legend tells how the cheeky Kea bird got the beautiful splash of ‘secret’ colour hiding away beneath the Kea’s drab exterior. The Kea looked longingly upon the more brightly coloured feathers of other birds and wished for beautiful plumage. In the middle of the night, the Kea stole some of these brightly coloured feathers and secreted them under his wings before flying away.
These native parrots are highly intelligent and known for their cheeky personalities. The Kea cookie cutter colour represents the bird’s feathers in olive green.
