Day 257 – …Now watch me whip, whip (watch me Nene)…

Posted on

You didn’t really think that the Dancing Birder would miss the opportunity to use this song, did you?? Especially after seeing the Hawaiian national bird, the Hawaiian Goose–the Nene.

Yesterday I spent a great day birding with Lance Tanino and a couple of other birders in the rainforest at Hakalau NWR. We were able to see the whole list of endemics, my favorite being my namesake, the Iiwii (pronounced Ee-eevee).

We also saw 2 of the 3 Raptors on the island. The Short-eared Owl(Hawaiian) and Hawaiian Hawk.

Such a contrast to last week in Gambell. It got up to 100 degrees and 3000% humidity and I loved it!!
