Celebrate and learn about forest birds

The Division of Forestry and Wildlife has created a new website dedicated to celebrating Hawaiʻi’s forest birds.

The new site has links to events, learning activities, and more, including:
• detailed species profiles for Hawaiian forest birds, including photos of extinct birds from collections at Bishop Museum;
• forest bird audio mixes for Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Maui, and Hawaiʻi Island, allowing users to imagine how restored, bird-filled forests would sound;
• curricula and lesson plans on Hawaiian honeycreepers and other forest birds
• locally-produced mini-documentaries featuring hula, birdsong, and behind-the-scenes footage of bird conservation efforts;
• activities, crafts, games, coloring books, and stickers for Hawaiʻi classrooms;
• opportunities to donate or purchase items that support bird conservation, and
• a year-long calendar of events including volunteer opportunities, festivals, workshops, contests, and performances.
