Jack Jeffrey, who’s photos are featured in the Hawai’i Audubon Society’s bird book, leads great trips to Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge on Da Big Island. I managed to get on a trip while over there last year in early February, just before COVID hit us. Great trip and got all the Hawai’i endemics - just excellent!

May all your birds be identified,

Our vote is the Big Island and one or two tours with Hawaii Forest and Trails, which picks up at various hotel/condo areas. And the Aimakapa Pond for shorebirds. Oahu is also good, especially Kapiolani Park at the Diamond end of Waikiki with many of the introduced birds and the irresistible White Tern; and tropicbirds and boobies off the windward side near Sea Life Park/Blow Hole/Hanaumu Bay. Kauai has its great lighthouse for tropicbirds, Layson Albatross (until July), and if you go to the gate at night you can hear the shearwaters coming in with the eerie calls that frightened sailors back in the day. Plus the often wet Kokee Park up at the top via Waimea Cyn. There’s a little book you can get, Hawaii’s Birds put out by their Audubon—try the SAS Nature Shop for that. The books has details on most of the expected birds with site suggestions on each island.

Hi all,

I am considering a trip to Hawaii. I've never been and I haven't taken a true vacation in several years. I am wondering if anyone has gone birding there and if so they have recommendations of good birding spots?
