Searching for breakfast
I was sitting on the lanai one morning having coffee, a daily ritual while on vacation in paradise, and I saw this bird flying around trying to pluck something to eat out of the ocean. It was still a little dark but I put the Nikon 28-300mm lens on the camera and took a few photos. These were shot at 300mm with an ISO of 400.
And before you ask, I don't have a bird book so I have no idea what kind of bird this is. LOL
Tex forced me to find out what this bird was so you can blame this on her. LOL
This is a Hawaiian Brown Noddy or Noio Kōhā. It is considered indigenous to Hawaii and there are five sub-species of the brown noddy. The brown noddy is part of the tern family.
There you go, that's your Hawaiian lesson for the day.
