 I visited the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge this morning for the first time ever.

Birds were in abundance, but mostly lots of 'alae kea (Hawaiian Coot) and the truly obnoxious ae'o (Hawaiian Stilt), both of which are endangered species.

Never visit these ponds with a headache, though. The ae'o constantly sounded off whenever I was near and I found their loud call not dissimilar to a car alarm - and it NEVER STOPPED the entire time I was there. I will not be going back ever again, at least not without ear plugs.
