An Eden for Rare Birds in Hawaii. New York Times
"Rare birds aren’t a rarity in Hawaii, which leads the nation with 35 birds on the endangered species list. The green, tranquil island of Kauai has lost almost half of its native forest bird species. Only eight of the island’s original 13 forest birds still exist, six of which can be found only on Kauai. They include the akekee, the akikiki, and the puaiohi, three species that are on the brink of blinking out."
This is a fine introduction to Kauai's indigenous wildlife.
