I will be away from my computer, but I will visit your critter posts and blogs as soon as possible. Thanks for linking up and for your comments. 

I hope you will enjoy some more of my Kauai Birds, each day we visited different beach parks. I found some birds in each park. I promise to be done with my Kauai posts soon. Just one more post to go hang in there. 


1. Salt Pond Beach Park, here I found the Wandering Tattler, the Pacific Golden Plover, the Common Myna and the chickens.





2. There are two Tattlers seen in Hawaii, the Wandering Tattler and the Gray-tailed Tattler, they are shorebirds found on the Pacific Coast and Hawaii. This bird forages while bobbing it's tail up and down. 





3. The Pacific Golden Plover was seen in various places around the Island of Kauai.





4. At the Spouting Horn Park, I watched a Cattle Egret foraging, there were also some of the Red-crested Cardinals, Common Myna and chickens. 





5. The larger shot of the Cattle Egret. 





6. One of the few Brown Anole lizards we saw during our vacation.




7. Kauai Coffee Company self guided tour. The gift shop, the huge metal chicken, Saffron Finch, Java Saprrow, Golden Plover, various flowers and coffee trees. 



8. Three Java Sparrows which is a lifer for me. Also seen here was a Saffron Finch. I have seen the Saffron Finches in Curacao. 





9. Four of the Java Sparrows with the Saffron Finch. 





10. On our return to our hotel, we always saw at least one of the cats  seen daily hanging out at the hotel lobby. 




11. I believe these birds are the Wandering Tattlers, they were seen on the beach during the sunrise.

On Sept 27th, with these photos I am taking you back to Kauai, we drove on the south side of the island, near the Barking Sands Beach 

 Click on photos for larger viewing.

1. We stopped at the Kawaiele Waterbird Sanctuary, below is a mosaic showing some of the waterbirds we saw at the Waterbird Sanctuary. We saw lots of the Hawiian Stilt, Hawaiian Coot, Black-crowned Night Heron, Zebra Dove, Sanderling, Ruddy Turnstone and the Common Ringed Plover.  





2. The Hawaiian Stilt was one of my favorite Kauai Birds. 






3. The Common Ringed Plover another common bird seen in Kauai Hawaii. 






4. The Hawaiian Coot and in the background is the Black-crowned Night Heron. 





5. The Pacific Golden Plover, I saw this birds in various spots around the island of Kauai. 





6. The Sanderling is a bird I see on the beach at home, along the Atlantic Coast. 





7. The Ruddy Turnstone is a bird I can see on our Atlantic Coast, especially in the winter months, 





8. The Hawaiian Coot, similar to our American Coot. 




9. A group of the Hawaiian Stilts. 




10. The Kawaiele Waterbird Sanctuary, we walked on some of the trails, checking out closer views of the birds. 




I hope you enjoyed these Kauai birds.

* Just a note, I am not sure how many of my blogging friends are fans of Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache books but I noticed Amazon Prime or Acorn will have a series called "A Three Pines" based on Penny's novels. It premieres on Dec 2nd. I already have her # 18 in the Gamache series on hold, it is called "A World of Curiosities" due out on Nov. 29th.
