PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/26/18 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2018 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Kailua on Oahu, Hawaii • Kawai Nui Marsh
Notes: Typically marshes and swamps are not the first stop that most tourists make when visiting Hawaii, but for me they are high on the list. Kawai Nui Marsh in Kailua always has something interesting creeping around, and this visit did not disappoint. The Hawaiian Gallinule is typically a very shy bird, but one of them approached my position along the dike trail. I had kneeled beside a bush at an open area where we have birded in the past, when this chicken-like waterbird crept up onto the shore adjacent my position. Then, it began to forage between the short plans and mudflats. As it crossed back and forth, coming closer and closer, it eventually passed right in front of me several times! Once it was so close, I was unable to focus my camera. So I just sat back and enjoyed the view. After a while a second bird entered the area and began to search for food as well. Eventually they both re-entered the water and swam off, leaving me grateful.
