在新西蘭，瀕危的卡卡鸚鵡 (kākā) 會於冬季飛到遠離牠們原本棲息地的鄉村地區。 研究人員用 GPS 追踪牠們的季節性活動，以了解牠們的由來。他們發現從冬季到早春，這些鸚鵡會留在被標記的範圍。 而晚春開始，牠們會沒規律地向不同的方向移動 35-100 公里，沒有一隻鸚鵡如研究人員假設的造訪附近的森林地區。他們對這種行為感到驚訝，並認為這些鸚鵡可能只是在四處旅遊觀光。
In New Zealand, endangered native parrot, kākā , will visit rural areas over winter, a long way from their typical habitat and breeding ares. researchers used GPS to track their seasonal movements to learn about where they come from. They found out from winter to early spring, these parrots stay around where they were tagged. however, starting from late spring, they move in different directions between 35-100km and none of the parrot visit the nearby forested areas as researchers assumed. The researchers were surprised with this behavior and think it’s possible that these parrots were just traveling and looking around.
