Kakariki's are delightful birds from New Zealand. I was lucky some were available, they have great personalities. I've been looking for one since visiting New Zealand and seeing some @ Te Anau Wildlife Centre @ Fiordlands National Park
ANNOUCEMENT: @ 10pm Dec 28, 2007 Takitimu died peacefully after a valiant effort to stay alive for 4 days. She was a great friend, its a great loss to me, her owner.

13 years old   F

Red-Crowned Kakariki

Black oil seed, occasionally lettuce

Anyone, except me, approaching her nestbox.

He's my best friend, always watching over me!

Kakarikis are odd parrot, cold adapted, scratching their food like chickens, grabbing food with her feet instead of her beak..

  So sorry for your loss....
The flock and I here am so sorry to here of your loss. Takitimu was a pretty bird. It is so sad when they go but I am sure they all get together wherever they are for a good chat. there is not a day that goes by that I dont think of my Keeko. Sometimes I laugh and others I cry. They carve out a special place in your heart. Here is a vote for Takitimu. Keeko hopes Takitimu will visit her in her special place for some talk and seed. :) Noah, Lucky, Pip and Squeak, and the late Keeko. And of course mommie.

Come visit me, Keeko/In Loving Memory, Noah & Lucky.

  Answers about Takitimu
She's a great bird, these Kakariki's come from New Zealand ranging down into the Subantarctic Islands of NZ as well as the Southern Beech forests. Her name is from the canoe that brought the first Maori to the South island and for the mountain range of that name on the South Island. Also, yes shes laid eggs, all infertile. She's a very confiding and trusting bird. I'd recommend this Species to anyone looking for a Bird.

Come visit me, Snowy, Takitimu (died Dec. 28, 2007), Yarra, Sunny & Clancy.
