Flying high but still endangered

November 27, 2013
The Maui News
A pair of nene geese fly over Launiupoko last week. Thanks to efforts by many agencies, groups and individuals, Hawaii’s state bird has made a comeback on Maui, with the sounds of their honking filling the air in many areas around the island as they fly overhead. Earlier this month, Haleakala National Park officials reported that two nene were found killed, apparently hit by motorists on Crater Road. This is the start of the endangered birds’ breeding season, a time when they are more active in hunting for food or seeking water near roadsides.
