The Polynesian Voyagers
who colonized Hawaii
brought red junglefowl
chickens with them.

Today, there are many 
feral fowl
strutting around 
our islands.
This fellow makes 
Diamond Head his home.

I gotta CROW!

It's a pretty bird. Escapes that are now feral - interesting!

Feral fowl makes me smile. They obviously knew a good thing when they saw it...
