Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-billed Leiothrix

(Leiothrix lutea)

Where: Oahu, HI • Ho`omaluhia Botanical Garden at Kaneohe

Notes: This elusive bird seemed to prefer the darkness and low light habitat of the lush forest understory. Every time we saw this little gem it was extremely active, deep in the densest thickets. They were usually in a small groups hopping around on branches low to the ground. Thanks to a White-rumped Shama making a distress call, this and several other birds showed up to see what the fuss was about. I joined in with a little "pishing" of my own. Soon this curious bird explored out to the road's edge where i was standing. This was surely the best lighting opportunity I had to photograph this brilliantly colored songbird. The overcast skies provided smooth even light and I was able to squeeze off a dozen shots, before it retreated back into the shadows. The Leiothrix was first imported into the Hawaiian Islands in 1911, with intentional releases to the wild occurring after 1918. It is now a common species in Oahu.
