Birds of Hawaii

I am not a bird watcher, and I never hike in the wild to look at birds. This is due to crippling arthritis and sheer laziness. Sorry.

If you have not already done so, please click on David’s name on my blogroll and scroll down. This man lives in eastern Canada and writes about birds. Recently, he and a group of bird watchers toured a swamp in Cuba. He posted interesting photos of the birds there, among other animals.

Or you can click on this link to David’s blog:

Today, I would like to post photos of some of the birds of Hawaii. Somehow, these birds managed to cross the Pacific and get here. And then, they grew and they multiplied.

So, here they are. (Images from the Internet)

This concludes my brief overview of bids of Hawaii. There are more to show, but I’ll stop here.

Hope you enjoyed it.

    Hawaii has very colorful birds, Gigi, so thank you for presenting some. I also read David’s post about his Cuba excursion and he is such a knowledgeable source of information not only on birds, but other topics as well.

    Thanks for the shout-out, Gigi, I appreciate it, and I especially appreciate these fabulous pictures of some of your endemic Hawaiian birds. I doubt that I will ever make it there so I will enjoy them vicariously.

    I wonder why most tropical birds are so colorful. Must be adaptation for something.

    These are beautiful photos and I had no idea so many birds considered Hawaii their home. Thanks Gigi. 🙂

    I love your get togethers — gracious hosting, beautiful table, and good food.
    I am not an active bird watcher but they do sometimes capture my attention for a bit.
