On my recent trip to Kaua’i, I spotted more birds than several of my visits to Maui. This could be due to the large number of roaming Red Junglefowl, or that once I started looking, I couldn’t stop. Of all the birds I did notice, it seems a majority were brought here over the past hundreds of years- likely as pets and stowaways. Unfortunately, I didn’t get great pictures of all the ones I liked and I never saw a Brown Booby nor a Pueo (I wonder if they get hungover on Kaua’i).
In my searching to find out some of these birds & their histories, I stumbled across 2 fabulous resources- enjoy.
