Kauai Pics

Today's topic: Flora and Fauna
I don't know what flower this is but I thought it was beautiful.

Ah, the Kauai icon - the wild chicken. They are everywhere! And the roosters like to compete to see who can crow the loudest. Usually at 3am in the morning.

Red hibiscus used to be the Kauai flower until the powers that be realized the red color was man-made. Now it's the yellow hibiscus because that color occurs naturally.
The national bird of Hawaii, the Ne Ne goose. Very sweet little creatures who seem to enjoy buttered toast more than you'd think. Not that we threw our buttered toast off the balcony or anything.

Stay tuned for more tomorrow!
