Napali Coast

After an initial day on Oahu, a few of us made the very quick flight to Kauai.  The plan was for everyone but me to hike the Napali Coast, camp for a night or two while I birded around the island, and meet up again before heading back to Oahu.

Things generally followed that plan, but the rain threw a wrench in everyone's plan. The hike they were doing required a few stream crossings, but as the rain kept coming, the streams turned to rivers and complicated things quite a bit.

Before the rain really came down I was able to explore a bit along the northern coast of the island.

Here I spotted my first Red-crested Cardinals.

As well as the melodious White-rumped Shama
