Observations on the Habits of New Zealand Birds, their Usefulness or Destructiveness to the Country.
By A. Reischek, F.L.S.

[Read before the Auckland Institute, 19th October, 1885.]

Psittacidæ.—Parrots.

The four species in New Zealand are only destructive when they are too numerous. During the fire in Oxford Forest, large flocks of Platycercus novæ-zealandiæ, Red-fronted Parrakeet (Kakariki), then Platy. auriceps (Yellow-fronted Parrakeet), came to Christchurch, destroying the fruit of orchards. They were so numerous, I could shoot them from the Museum, where several pairs bred under the roof. On the northern portion of the North Island these birds are getting very rare, except on the outlying islets.
