Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park is where I do my 3.3 mile walk 4-5 times a week. I use the entrance by the harbor berm (that big long pile of rocks):

Today a large flock (at least 20) of Ae'o, Hawaiian Stilts was feeding at low tide:


They're an endangered species, but the population seems to be getting larger. Last year two of them made their nest right next to one of the trails and attacked when I got too close. But I feel affection for them. They're wonderfully graceful fliers. Two mini-flocks of seven birds each flew up and down the coast in constantly changing formations formations, squawking as they flew by, while I finished my walk.
