Kakariki Feeding Young

Kakariki feeding young.

A tasty treat
I pass on to you
To nourish your soul

genus Cyanoramphus, family Psittacidae
Both birds assist with the feeding of the young.
They feed on leaves, buds, flowers, shoots, seeds, fruit, berries, nuts and other parts of plants.
They also eat insects and animal remains. On islands and In coastal areas, they forage on seaweed and mussels.
They also take up tiny stones, most likely to help with digestion. ~ Bernard
