Very interesting, JB -- and kind of sad, really. When we were in Hawaii, I noticed how easy it was to find common, imported, adapted-to-city birds
(pigeons and sparrows) and how hard it was to find native birds.
The sad fact is that though we saw imports (including the perky and spectacular cardinals (gray wings and back, white breast, red heads)) we did not
see any native Hawai'ian birds.
Although we're amateur birders, I've noticed that we're not seeing a lot of bird diversity these days. (sigh)
