More Hawaiian Birds on Kauai

 Yesterday I finally found the place to see some native Hawaiian birds.  The taro fields here in Hanalei are filled with marsh birds and of course plenty of the introduced species, but the five minutes that is was not dumping rain did make for some good photo time.

  1. The "pectoral sandpiper" looks like a regular old kolea, pacific golden plover.

    Also, Erckel's Francolin, and shama instead of sharma
