PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/29/18 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2018 PICSNEXT WEEK

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

Notes: These elusive little birds prefer the deepest darkest understory of the rainforest like vegetation on Oahu. This makes photographing them particularly challenging, because of the extremely low-light conditions. Having gotten caught in an afternoon shower, I was attempting to make my way out of the park before the next rain fell. As I trudged up the garden path, I noticed a small flock of these little gems searching for food on the ground. They scattered as I walked by, so I stopped, kneeled down and waited quietly. Almost immediately the group returned to feeding along the walkway. Then one of the Leothrix flew up and began to roll around on top of the large ginger leaves overhead. It was using the raindrops to bathe in. I had seen warblers do this in my backyard in Richmond, Virginia on top of large Hosta leaves five thousand mile away.
