Hawaiian Critter of the Day 2

I give you the rare (actually an endangered species) Hawaiian Nene (nay nay) goose.

In terms of a little background, etc…  This shot was taken at Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island (Hawai’i).  Nene are only found on the Hawaiian islands and are the only species of goose not found on an actual continent.  They’re also endangered.  They almost became extinct but are now back up to a little over 2500 in number.

No idea if they like to whip and nay nay either…

    I never heard of those geese before. Good job with the picture.

    Also, thanks for liking my Kimba comment on that other post. You’ve watched t before or do you just know about that plagiarism controversy?

        Oh, that’s definitely true. I stopped liking Disney years ago for this and many other reasons. The Kimba show and some of the movies are actually good and have a surprising amount of depth to it.
