Bristle-thighed Curlew, Hawaii

Pacific Golden Plover, Hawaii
The most common migrant in the islands was the Pacific Golden Plover (Pat Wileman).
Veiled Chameleon, Hawaii
On one of our walks we found this introduced Veiled Chameleon (Mark Van Beirs).
Next we flew to Hilo, on the east side of the Big Island, where we first birded some ponds (Pat Wileman).
Our first Nenes (Hawaiian Geese) showed very well here (Mark Van Beirs).
Hawaiian Coot, Hawaii
The endemic Hawaiian Coot was easy to find (Pat Wileman).
Wandering Tattler, Hawaii
A Wandering Tattler was feeding along the rocky shoreline (Mark Van Beirs).
A drake Gadwall also showed (Mark Van Beirs).
Flowering Ohia trees were all over the Hakalau Reserve. Akiapolaau, Hawaiian Creeper and Akepa performed very well (Mark Van Beirs).
The magnificent Iiwi is probably the most inspiring of the Hawaiian Honeycreepers (Pat Wileman).
