Kea questions

We're coming for about 4 months of summer tramping, and I've got some kea questions: 1) If we're taking a day hike from "base camp", do I need to strike the tent completely in order to avoid daytime invasion & destruction? Or just flatten the tent? Or is this not a problem at all? 2) We'll be taking a lot of day hikes from the main trail to see this or that feature...if we leave our packs (or maybe a black plastic garbage bag filled with stuff) by the side of the trail for an hour or two, will the keas find them & rip 'em to shreds? Thanks for any advice...

In the middle of the wilderness 10 come to visit us and were sitting in the tree above our camp ready to come get us!
Here's a new kea hazzard, or a new level of Kea ingenuity. I wonder if the poms have a border alert for illegal kea immigrants
