The perfect piece for kākā lovers! So many thoughts and emotions are captured in this gorgeous kākā portrait - she's inquisitive, plotting something for sure, but also somewhat coy about it. She wants to know what you're up to! Her gentle nature shines through.

Would you believe I photographed this beautiful kākā from my front door? Here in suburban Wellington, just 10 minutes from the CBD and Parliament, we have rare and precious birds in our backyards! Although she's unbanded (ie no rings on her legs), she undoubtedly descended from the Zealandia population, which has long since spilled out of the fenced sanctuary and into the wider Wellington region. Linton and I have volunteered in the kākā conservation program at Zealandia for well over a decade, so to have them in our garden now, living wild and free, is the most special thing you can imagine! Kākā are my muse, and thus the name of this piece.

This fine-art print comes on archival heavyweight fine-art paper or metal (extra-large only). Each print is hand-signed and editioned with love and care. Judi donates 10% of her proceeds for this print to Forest & Bird, and this piece will premiere at the Feathers & Foliage: Celebrating 100 Years of Forest & Bird exhibition.
