The Nene is Hawaii's state bird. They are also known as the Hawaiian Goose, but Nene is so much more fun to say!
We have wild Nene on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai, but there are some at the Honolulu zoo on Oahu as well (at least there were some there when I lived on Oahu).
My Ke Aloha series is perfect for the Nene. Their long curved necks make excellent hearts! It is the season for being thankful for the one you love and showing it with lots of kisses!!
