Hosmer Grove 2

Our second trip to Hosmer Grove was in better weather. Some of the pictures are better and I added several new life birds to my list (see list below). The Hawaii ʻAmakihi and Maui ʻAlauahio or Maui Creeper were having a territorial squabble.

The scarcity of native Hawaiian birds in due to human impact. For instance, people brought in other birds, cats, and mosquitoes.

After Hosmer we drove up to the summit and I made some great photographs of the Haleakala Crater.

Here is my list of birds that I saw in Maui. I saw 38 species in total, 22 of those were ‘life’ birds, and 8 of the life birds were native to Hawaii (yellow highlights).

    Beautiful variety of pictures! The red bird looks like he’s wearing a velvet jacket.
