The Kea are attracted by the prospect of food scraps from human habitation. Their curiosity leads them to peck and carry away unguarded items of clothing, or to pry apart rubber parts of cars - to the entertainment and annoyance of human observers. They are often described as "cheeky". This photo shows how this kea was wise to the fact that my pack may contain food and immediately tried to "investigate" my pack.
