PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/29/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Oahu, HI • Ala Moana Beach Park
Notes: We were on our way to hopefully photograph some “Fairy” Terns at Kapiolani Regional Park, just southeast on Honolulu, where we had seen them in previous years. But as we passed the Ala Moana Beach Park, we got sidetracked when we caught a glimpse of several very white birds flitting around in the trees. We immediately pulled in and parked. Sure enough, there were several Manu-o-Kū landing in the trees, right along the busy thoroughfare. For a couple of hours these small delicate seabirds flew in and out of area. Occasionally they would land on a low branch, and often in pairs. They would snuggle up and even preen each other occasionally. This all white tern with dark eyes and a sharply pointed black bill is notable for laying its egg on an open branch, without even building a nest. It will use a fork in a branch or a depression on a limb to hold a single egg. They feed on fish that they snatch from the water’s surface while in flight or they shallow dive. Their sporadic flight makes them a real challenge for flight shots as they dart in and out of the trees. We ended up spending nearly the entire day at that park and never made it into town.
