This article is about an older version of DF.
A small, green, intelligent mountain parrot.


Kea are flying pests that like to steal shiny or colourful things. They are especially attracted to cloth, gems, metal bars and even wheelbarrows. They may even steal fish from a barrel after interrupting the dwarf hauling it. They are similar to a raccoon or rhesus macaque, but smaller and winged; the fact that they are winged and capable of flight makes them extremely annoying if they find a way into any unroofed outdoor camps.

Kea are often too small to be butchered, but may be a source of eggs if captured and tamed. They can and will draw blood on dwarves and small pets, like cats. A wagon newly deployed to a fortress can be beset by a large, ravenous group of kea and have their stuff stolen and their days ruined. If you find that your newly founded fortress is infested with kea, a good defensive measure is to move the contents of your wagon underground as quickly as possible, using temporary stockpiles in your fortress entrance if necessary. This will force the pests to stop flying if they want to come and steal something, making them no more or less threatening than other thieving beasts.

Admired for their curiosity and intelligence
