Hookipa HouseFinch, watching the surfers

Boxing Day at Hookipa, and the waves were rather large. Even the Housefinch in the tree was being entertained.

Everyone looked like they were having fun on the waves, even the kids came out in full force today, even the very little ones….  I had a good vantage point from the cliffs, and got some great shots of some of the action

The Java sparrow checked out my storage jar and tried quite hard to figure out how to get at those yummy looking seeds inside. He circled it about 3 times before giving up, and decided to go pester the red crested cardinal feeding at the full bowl. Both birds gave way to the Red Cardinal…  who tucked in..

The waves seemed perfect for the guys and girl out at break called Pavilions, which is opposite the Pavilions at Ho’okipa Beach Park, on Maui’s North Shore.

I sat on the rocks nearby, and took some shots of the action, trying out a borrowed 1×4 extender on my 400mm zoom lens.  I think I need to buy one..
