Foraging in a native shrub (possibly 'ohelo 'ai). One of the few native birds on the islands I managed to photo.

The bird in 2nd photo appeared to be a young bird begging for a feeding from a nearby parent.

No photo of the bird, just observation. The shoreline is signed here as a nesting site for Wedge-tailed Shearwaters (see pics). Briefly glimpsed one or two during daylight along rocky shoreline cliff. After nightfall, we saw several silhouetted against sky (could see wedge-shaped tail and long wings) as they returned to their burrow nests in sandy ground set back from the rocky shore. Heard them calling from nests about 9:00 pm: an eery ooOOOoo call and other vocalizations that sounded like a baby crying or a catfight.
