The Baby Apapane

I thought I’d end this weekend of Easter, Passover and Buddha’s Birthday (coming up) with one of the last photos taken of the nest of apapane. Kris got this shot yesterday before we left. I wish we could have stayed to see these fledglings take off.
They changed a great deal in the three days we were in Volcano. That’s survival. Gotta be quick for some things in nature.


  1. Dear Robin Scanlon

    I am a french ornithologist (attaché to Paris museum), had visited five times the Hawaiian islands and preparing a book on the Hawaiian Finches because there is no book at all on this subject in french. In this way, I would love to reproduce your very nice and interesting series of the Apapane nidification. I could offer you the pdf book (when published) in return of you permission.

    Michel Ottaviani,

    • Hi Michel…You can use the photos on our site. Please give photo credit to Eye of the Islands Photography, Inc.

      Thank you!
