Just got back from Kauai, Hawaii. Not the best place on earth for birds, but I added another 27 species to my life list – and cracked the 400 species bird count for the year! I just put up a gallery of the better shots I took. No real stunners but a couple aren’t too bad.

As always, I’ve uploaded the better pictures to Wikimedia Commons and updated the odd wikipedia page as well (e.g. the Kauai Amakihi).

Sadly, that’s the last trip I’ll be taking this year. The year’s highlights were definitely New Zealand and Costa Rica. Should be returning to Costa Rica next spring – pity NZ is so damn far away…!
