Kilauea Point NWR

Stopping at multiple drizzly sites along the way, I made my way back around Kauai and out to Kilauea Point NWR.

A variety of seabirds nest on, in and along the cliffs of this refuge, including Red-footed Boobies, Wedge-tailed Shearwaters, Red-tailed and White-tailed Tropicbirds, Great Frigatebirds and Laysan Albatross.

Though nesting season hasn't started yet, the Red-footed Boobies were there in force, staking claim over territories on the cliff's vegetation.

Red feet!

Great Frigatebird

There were a few Albatross flying around, but many more were on the edge of the cliffs.
