Wild Oahu Bird Wednesday

A  L  O  H  A !
Tropicbird

" To stand at the edge of the sea,
 to sense the ebb and flow 
of the tides, 
to feel 
the breath of a mist 
moving over a great salt marsh, 








Booby

" - to watch the flight of shore birds 
that have swept up
 and down the surf lines 
 for untold thousands of year, 









Red Crested Cardinal

" -is to have knowledge
 of things that are 
as nearly eternal 
as any earthly life can be.
                                                     Rachel Carson

Thanks to Carroll Cox for the Sea Bird Photos

Just gorgous. And free as they should be. To ride the air and delight observers.

Rachel Carson was such a wise woman! The Booby is an interesting bird, for sure!

I love the picture of the booby. I've read about them many times, but this was the first time I'd ever seen a good picture of one. I love the powder blue beak/bill.

I didn't know there was a cardinal in Hawaii.

Sandy Carlson said...

Rachel knew. And he name has been dragged through the muck for her wisdom. But here we are recognizing it and feeling the peace that comes with knowing it.

Thanks for these beautiful images.

When I was a kid in Midway, we called that first one a Bosun Bird. Loved seeing these exotics again!
