Yay 'I'iwi! These little guys are mascots of Hawaii. With their flashy red and black coat, funny hooked beaks and quirky looks, how can you not smile when one comes to visit? Although small, the 'I'iwi is an adaptive, tough bird. The 'I'iwi is one of the least vulnerable of all Hawaii nectar birds and is able to migrate from island to island, allowing the species to find suitable places to feed, rest and nest. Thats exactly what my two loves are up to here... A little R&R alone time together. With a kiss to build a dream on.
