A week in Hawaii: O'ahu and Kauai. Last updated: 2/15/2007.

Above and below four: Bristle-thighed Curlews on O'ahu (2/8/2007).

Below: An Apapane nectars on O'hia Lehua in Kokee SP, Kauai (2/10/2007).

Below: A Kauai Amakihi along a high ridge in Kokee SP, Kauai (2/10/2007).

Below two: A Kauai Elepaio along the Alakai Swamp Trail, Kauai (2/11/2007).

Below: The declining O'ahu Elepaio, which I've had a much harder time finding (2/13/2007).

Below three: The Red Junglefowl of Kauai's rainforests are descendants of the "Moa" brought to Hawaii by early Polynesian settlers (2/10/2007).

Below two: A pair of Koloa (Hawaiian Duck) x Mallards at the Kahuku Shrimp Ponds on O'ahu (2/4/2007). Although these birds look to me exactly like their pure-blooded relatives on Kauai, all recent DNA testing of O'ahu Koloa has uncovered at least some Mallard DNA.
