PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/10/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Oahu, HI • Makapu'u Point Lookout
Notes: Here is one last post from our Hawaii trip this past spring. Makapu’u Point is one of my all-time favorite places. Geographically, it is on the extreme eastern point of the island of Oahu. We have found it a good vantage point to see an occasional fly-by of some of the local seabird species. In the past we have seen Brown-footed Boobies, Great Frigatebirds, Wedge-tailed Shearwater and Red-footed Boobies (SEE: PIC OF THE WEEK 11/16/09). Sometimes the birds pass by very closely. However, despite hearing that this was a good spot for Tropicbirds, we had never seen one. We started our visit at the Sealife Park pier facing Mānana Island and waited a while. But we saw only a few distant birds. After deciding to return to the vehicle, we turned to discover a Frigatebird gliding overhead. It traveled effortlessly, following along the road as they often do. Then it disappeared over the gap where the Kalanianaole Highway turns the corner and heads back towards Sandy Beach. So we decided to spend our last few minutes on Oahu up on the lookout, since the Frigatebird had just headed that way. The lookout is perched at the top of a shear cliff that overlooks Makapu’u Beach, about 300 feet straight up. Within a few minutes a white bird with a black mask darted behind us along the cliff’s face. So we turned out attention from the ocean side toward the land. Twice more this elegant seabird passed along the road giving us a chance to admire.
