Mamo Time! As I have mentioned before, the Mamo is one of many native Hawaiian bird species that is now extinct. They were beautiful birds with jet black bodies, golden yellow underbellies and yellow/white banded wings. I chose "Back In Black" from AC/DC as their song because I wish they could come back from extinction with some attitude. These Mamo are hanging out on a yellow Ohia Lehua blossom. The left one is singing, "Back in black, I hit the sack, It's been to long I'm glad to be back." The right one is doing some head bobbing and singing the last lines before the final guitar solo, "Back in black, yes I'm back in black, outta sight!"
