Kea on a car wing mirror

This kea is investigating the car door for anything it can remove with its strong beak. It won’t have any trouble ripping away the soft rubber seal around the window. In some mountain areas, people cover vulnerable parts of their car with fine wire mesh for protection, if parking for hours or days.
