Hawaii
Summary and Stats
 
For a few moments, I thought I'd never bird again.  Who was I kidding?  By September, I had already planned a trip to Costa Rica, for Tom and myself during December of the same year.
 
These are the bird species seen over the four islands of Maui, Kauai, Hawai'i and Oahu (not counting the phantom "Akialoa" and "Kauai O'o"...)
 
Statistics:
Number of bird species: 67
Number of lifebirds: 38
