Sirocco the kakapo entertains peering crowds on the first weekend of his Orokonui Ecosanctuary residency yesterday.

The rare native parrot screeched and showed his wings as he edged his way around the enclosure.

Kakapo ranger Freya Moore said he was settling in as if he had never left the ecosanctuary four years ago.

"He’s very curious and engaging with people, as usual."

He was an entertainer who loved performing for the crowd, she said.

Sirocco arrived in Dunedin on Friday and the ecosanctuary will hold viewings until September 29.
