Hawai‘i’s islands are a unique ecosystem unlike any other place on earth. Over 90% of the bird, snails, insects, arthropods, trees, and plants are not found anywhere else. This bird guide is an introduction to Hawai‘i’s most commonly seen endemic and introduced birds. Included are marine, wetland, forest, open country, and urban birds. Some of these birds are endangered, vulnerable, or near threatened and have been listed as such.
Birding options in Hawai‘i are available on all islands. Visit the Hawaii Audubon Society online at hawaiiaudubon.org for the most current birding locations.
Ten panels includes 36 birds with English, Japanese and scientific names and a brief description of size, habitat and country of origin.
