Nene

Photo of the Week (August 27th, 2017)

(archive photos of the week here)

OK, one more photo of the week from our Hawai'i trip.  On our one other whirlwind trip to Hawai'i many years ago, we only had one day on the Big Island. Despite all the signs for Nene (you'd think they were everywhere!), we didn't see one.  It took a while on this trip, but we certainly saw plenty of Nene.  There were a few times we saw them flying over, but literally EVERY time we saw one on the ground? They were on golf courses. Who knew Nene liked to golf?  I am glad I was able to get photos of the Hawaiian state bird.

Nene - Branta sandvicensis
