Birds look like pigeons, but with a black band with small yellow spots around the neck. Larger than most other birds commonly found in commercial and residential areas on the island.

While checking one of our units on DROA line, I looked up from a hole in the uluhe to see my first Japanese Bush Warbler. I always here these birds singing in the forests, but rarely see them because they stay in the deep in the foilage and fly away before you can even approach the base of the tree.

Saw several Kolea (American Golden Plovers) on the road embankments on our way out of Kapunakea. They were feeding in the open fields foraging for grubs and other insects. The plovers are almost done changing their plumage, and soon should be leaving for the Arctic for their summer migrations.

I saw this Pueo soaring overhead while doing our feral pig scouting in Kapunakea. It made this odd twitching motion every so often, almost as if it was shaking something off of it while it flew. It almost seemed like it would break into a dive to snatch a prey item, but instead it just did this strange twitch and continued flying.
