On Quercus pacifica, Island Scrub Oak. Hard, thin outer shell with interior stringy and nearly vacant. Possibly caused by Andricus Wasp species or Trichoteras species
cool looking mushroom peeking from the leaf debris. Apparently some older/stressed individuals will turn black as these apparently have. Drought stressed??
Buckeye nut still on the tree
not too many seen or heard
Heard more than seen. Seemed common
a few near a very busy beach
very common in pastures near Hana
One individual near an outflow into the ocean
Uncommon in open fields and edges of golf courses
We spent two hours watching these monsters cruise through. Photo: two for the price of one "spy-hopping"
Rubber tree at the bio preserve at least that is what the name plate said.
I saw two of these creatures while on Maui, one near Hana and the other in the bio preserve
common on the beaches. Make holes the size of your thumb in the sand, or depending on the size of the crab. This one was perhaps three inches across. Love the eye stalks.
Believe it or not, ferrel chickens
Likely the most common sparrow seen
very common on the island in the urban setting
This plant certainly looked like a form of bracken. Biological preserve near Napili-Honokowai
We saw several of this Ficus species at the biological preserve near Kaanapali
Somewhat common in the urban areas
Large tree covering all of a small city block. Also saw one at a biological preserve. Like many species in Hawaii, introduced.
Common on the streets and any open spaces. Small, just about half the size of a Rock Dove. Both sexes similar.

These antlers present a problem for me in that they don't look like normal antlers. They and the skull are very light and the antlers are almost styrofoam-like could this be forming antlers while in velvet and before hardening? Help me!
carcass dead for almost two weeks. Camera caught Bobcat, Coyote, Jays and Turkey vultures feeding on it. Thought to have died from Natural causes or illness. Left haunch taken by bobcat.
At the base of the dam. All of the breast meat gone. Neck stripped of feathers and flesh
Riparian habitat, very shaded location
