The Kolea is a amazing bird and I see them and wonder if its the same bird that was in the same spot a year ago. Come to find out they often do return to the same area year after year. Truly amazing !!

I always was a "leg" man. I guess I'll have some new legs to ogle this winter. I wonder if Kolea are territorial here in Hawai'i? I only seem to see one at a time and widely spaced here in dry country Ka'U.

Same here, a couple always hang out under that mango tree. They like to eat left over cooked rice! Two have bands on their legs, but are a bit skittish after the neighbor's cat tried to catch one.

They are amazing! And they sure seem to be territorial here, although sometimes their territory can be smaller than you might expect. We seem to have the same ones year after year, and they will chase away any other bird, including bully mynahs, that comes within their chosen radius. And I know they love earthworms but I haven't been able to find any.
