More little `Alae
Waimea Valley Audubon Center --Oahu, Hawaii
As promised here's a closer picture of these rare 'Alae with me feeding them. The birds are funny in that they kind of know they're the stars of the place. You can see them run up and get the food while the other birds (those grey zebra doves) kind of hang back waiting to come in and pick up the missed pieces of food here and there. Of course if one of the 'Alae feels the grey birds are crowding too much one of them will let out a little honk and the grey birds scatter for a bit giving the 'Alae room. Its an interesting dynamic.
