The Birds of Hawaii's Hakalau Forest
The NENE (Hawaiian Goose), the state bird of Hawaii, was recently re-introduced to the Hakalau National Wildlife Refuge and is occasionally seen in the upper elevation grasslands where it feeds on grasses, seeds and berries.
The PUEO (Hawaiian Short-eared Owl) is listed by the state as endangered on Oahu. It is commonly seen during daylight hours soaring over open areas in search of rodents, insects, and small birds.
