Hawai'i Mammals, Birds, Fish and everything else!

I need to wrap up this Hawai'i adventure!  I don't have a ton of dialogue for these other than we were lucky enough to be there during the heart of whale season and they could easily be viewed from most beaches.  Most of the images are from a couple different boat trips we took for various reasons though.

Spinner Dolphins were common on morning.

The views from one of our boat trips.

I had really wanted to see Hawaiian Monk seals.  We saw 2 on different beaches of Kauai.

We spent one day driving around the island and visited a nice bird and wildlife sanctuary.

The Hawaiian Goose, Nene, was all around.

Tropic birds.

Red-footed Booby

Frigate Bird

More Kauai - Waimea Canyon

Spouting Horn

More Nene

Brazilian Cardinal



Dragon's Nostrils

Sea Cucumber

And some more marine life.

Cone Snail!

Whoa - marathon in the end.  I have some of these animals IDd, but definitely not all.  Any suggestions are helpful!
