Saturday scenes and scenery: Hawaiian birds

All these are from Waikoloa Beach near Kona on the Big Island.

She seems to move with a sense of purpose. Considering she's sharing the road with cars, that's probably smart.

This goose on a golf course however seemed to know it should expect to be protected. It's a nene, the official state bird. In the 50s it had nearly been hunted to extinction, but has been successfully reintroduced.

Some kind of shore bird, also a little out of place on pavement ...

Here's another little yellow fellow, just because I liked him.
