This report is long overdue! I'd like to thank everyone who responded to my
request re birding in Honolulu and Vancouver back in April, the information
was very useful.We had a wonderful trip. The island of O'ahu where
(Honolulu ) has very little original plant/bird life! Even though it looks
jungly and beautiful it was ruined by cattle/cane barons and most of the
wild places are actually weedy regrowth! It was very beautiful, however.
We saw lots of gorgeous feral birds but the lovely White Terns were
everywhere in Honolulu swooping between the high rise hotels.
Vancouver birding was fabulous.We went out for a day with Jeremiah Kennedy
from Avocet Bird Tours. He was very knowledgeable, not only about birds,
and friendly and funny! We went mainly in the hills to the north of
Vancouver and their version of Werribee Treatment plant. My bird of the day
was the American Dipper fishing for crustaceans.We thoroughly recommend
Avocet for bird tours and particularly Jeremiah for the Vancouver area.
We also went to every park on our own that we could ,by public transport
,and saw my other target, Anna's Hummingbird several times.
Overall ,a city easy to negotiate with numerous easy birding experiences!
