To See Birds


 Indian  Myna















The Waxbill is seen on Oahu, 
not any of the other
 Hawaiian Islands.
Probably  introduced during the 1970's
 she is a native of Africa. 
"Considered shy."
Common Birds of Honolulu






























































































“ In order to see 
birds
 it is necessary
 to become
 a part of the
 silence. ”

Pretty little waxbills. I was surprised with the not-so-shy birds flitting into Hawaii's open air restaurants, usually behaving themselves. The sparrows on Maui and the roosters on Kauai aren't shy. Most of the roosters seem to know to stay out of the restaurants, but I did see fencing next to my table! DrumMajor

The Indian mynah is considered a pest here - and threatens some of our native birds. We still feed a pair most days. I loved the waxbill though - thank you.
