Mystery Bird

We decided to walk around Magic Island today, across from Ala Moana Center. The "island" is a manmade extension of Ala Moana Beach Park, with its entrance near the bridge into Waikiki.

You may recall that our Monday walks have been exclusively at Waterfront Park in the past. But today was a good day (a beautiful day) to make a change. Somehow, Mondays have turned out to be the most beautiful day of the week. At least, it’s been sunny and bright almost every time we’ve done our weekly walk.

One of the joys of walking is the discovery of new things. Today, it was the sighting of a species of bird that I have never ever seen before in Hawaii, or anywhere else I’ve been, for that matter.

I did a quick search on the Internet when I got home but couldn’t identify the bird. Maybe you can help? If you know what bird is perched atop this blog, please let me know. Thanks!
