Twenty-three kaka, captured at two sites in Big Bush State Forest and one site in Nelson Lakes National Park, were radio-equipped then followed and located by ground tracking and remote radio telemtry (including aerial radio tracking).

This paper examines the differences in seasonal and diurnal movements by male and female kaka in relation to habitat use and availability of various food resource in the forests of this region.
