  1. Lovely birds! The first one seems mis-named to me, as I always picture cardinals red all over!

  10. All so cool and different... I know the nene only through NYT crosswords, it seems to show up quite often. Recently a clue said "only state bird on the endangered list". Glad they're still there for you to take a picture. (Though I must admit I'd rather have that showy Cardinal if I were picking the symbol!)
