  1. A confrontation. Great shots.

    • Actually they were very lovey-dovey with each other. They were calling to Nene on the other side of the golf course, and eventually flew over to join them. They were a very cute couple! 🙂

  2. Beauty birds and photos, Linda. Nice to see them in flight on the video, too. Thanks for the introduction to the Nene.

    • Thanks for your nice comments Scott. They really are lovely. Wish they hadn’t been in such tall grass so I could have shown their feet. They’re webbed only about half way, with long claws to assist them in climbing over the lava rocks.

  3. Gorgeous birds Linda. A lovely series of photos, and video too.

    • I really love the Nene. Last year it took me awhile to find them. This year I found a pair when I wasn’t really looking for them. It pays to always have your camera with you!

  4. Hi Linda
    I should call my Wednesday “birdless” instead of ‘wordless”
    Got nothing here and the sun goes down so fast

    Great shots, congrats
    Love’em and U too 🙂

    • Thanks for your kind comments Mike. I’m sure the bird situation is pretty grim there in winter, but you make up for it in summer. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you, Lise and your family, and especially to that beautiful granddaughter! Love from Kaua’i. 🙂

  5. Such a lovely series of this beautiful pair! Fantastic!

    What a wonderful series, Linda. Glad to see you’re enjoying the local wildlife!

    • Thanks Jann. I’m taking photos faster than I can ever post them. Took the underwater camera out today. I’m going to need some practice with that one! Having a great time. 🙂

  8. Great series Linda. Have a great Christmas in the sun
