The bird's main colour is light green, but it has a red spot on it's head which is why it is referred to "Red Crowned Kakariki". It has a short white beak and very tiny legs! It has a long feather that sticks out and looks like a tail!

  1. Hi Charlie, I like the way that you have presented this information by using the questions, which act a bit like headings. Perhaps you could include a picture of the red crowned kakariki to show your reader as well.
