An adventure of my life time!

DSC08876-001

There are lots of birds in Hawaii. You can hear them almost anywhere, anytime. But you may or may not see them. And it is definitely not easy to take a picture. Many times, they disappeared before I picked the camera or they flew away right after I zoomed in on them.

One particular bird loved to sing right outside of my window in the middle of the night. The first time I heard it, I couldn’t help but smile. It sounded like “Bao Bei” which means “baby” in Chinese. I haven’t been called “baby” by anyone for a long time! Now a bird has been calling me “Bao Bei” every night. 🙂

PS. I know some of the names, but not others. Please let me know if you know the name.

  1. Second from the bottom is a yellow-billed cardinal. Hawaii is the only state I have not visited yet. Been saving the best for last 🙂

    • Thanks Brain. It is good to know the name of the bird, although there are too many to remember.
      I am really a red rock kind of girl. Hawaii isn’t the best, to me. Hope you like water, lots of it. 🙂
