Mau-o-ku are everywhere

White Terns eat fish.....lots and lots of fish. You should probably enlarge this picture by clicking on it for full enjoyment.

These two like to hang around outside the Midway Mall which includes the general store, library, internet cafe, barber shop, and the All Hands Club, our local bar.

The invasive Ironwood tree from Australia is harmful to the albatross, but increases the nesting habitat available to the White terns. This chicks have special claws on their feet for the first few weeks of life that helps them hang on to their "nest".

This is why they are sometimes called fairy terns
