OAHU ENDEMIC BIRDING ADVENTURE
Hawaii Birding Babe will provide you with a spectacular overview of Oahu’s beautiful birds by looping you around the scenic southeastern shore. We will begin by entering the lush, green, tropical rainforests of the Ko’olau mountains for brightly colored forest birds, then transcend down into the enchanted valleys in search of the endangered Oahu Elepaio, and explore the rugged coastline for majestic seabirds, before finishing in the protected wetlands for endemic waterbirds.
Highlight Target Species: Oahu Amakihi, Oahu Elepaio, Red-footed Booby, Red-tailed Tropicbird, White Tern, Hawaiian Coot, Hawaiian Gallinule, Hawaiian Stilt
