The A’eo is an endangered bird on the Hawaiian islands. but can be seen in large numbers at Kealia Ponds in Kihei, on Maui. The five year average count of these Hawaiian stilts across the Hawaiin islands is currently 3000 so they are protected and their habitats are managed to suit their breeding and feeding.  Visiting the new center can be very exiting at this time of year, they are all very busy in the run up to their nesting season..

Exploring upcountry Maui in Hawaii

I’ve had to buy a new camera because my 5year old one bit the dust – no power!  And I am loving my new Canon 7D… I’ve just explored the slopes of Haleakala by driving along the Haleakala Highway and the Kula Highway and visited the Botanical Gardens in Kula to try out my 100mm Macro lens on the 7D..  I’ve had a great Photo day in  Maui. Spring has sprung, all the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom.
