Red Crested Cardinal
We saw a lot of them, but this one and his mate, were always around our patio begging for food.
Juvenile Red Crested Cardinal
The head and crest start out orange and turn red as they mature. We call this guy "Rusty." By the time we left he was landing on our legs and would eat out of our hands. He was VERY cute!
Yellow-Masked Myna Bird
They were originally brought to Kauai as pets, but are now part of the landscape. This guy was one of about 10 we regularly saw around our patio. Like most Mynas, they are very good mimics and in captivity some of them can talk.
They are EVERYWHERE and always underfoot. Cute and friendly, they mate for life and always show up in pairs. They will also eat out of your hand.
Hawaiian Black Swan
Although, these aren't everywhere, when you do seen them, it's a treat. Their feathers are beautiful!
Two major hurricanes in the last twenty years resulted in a lot of loose poultry. Roosters, hens and chicks are EVERYWHERE! This friendly guy hung out under a chair on our patio. Whenever the urge hit him, he'd walk up to our screen door and crow. His signal to us, that he wanted a snack.
Now that I have your attention...
Does anybody know why I (and others) can't comment on all blog posts? I can comment on blogs with pop-up comment boxes and those that have the "everyone" box checked in their comment settings. Other blogs won't let me comment at all. So, if some of you are wondering where the heck I am and why I haven't been commenting, that is the reason...
Something has changed. Some blogs that I could freely comment on before, now require me to fill out a name and URl box. Some of you may notice that there is no profile photo of me in my comments to you. So, I have no idea what's going on, but I'm not liking it.
Chuck (Apocalypse Now) your blog is a good example, no matter what I do, I can't comment.
