So what else of Maui then? Beyond birding Hosmer Grove for the endemics I didn’t actually do much birding, as I had seen all the waterbird endemics on my last visit.
Sunday continued in much the same vein as Saturday, but without the birding.
Here’s a list of the native birds I saw on Maui, ie the ones that got there of their own accord rather than being brought there by people.
There was only ever really one spot where I was going to look for the endemic Honeycreepers on Maui, and this is Hosmer Grove about half way up the road that leads to the Haleakala Observatory, just after the entrance booth to the park.
