These birdies are 'Amakihi from Hawaii. They are on the lesser side of endangered because of their adaptability. Part of the Hawaiian honeycreepers family, the 'Amakihi usually feeds on nectar, but in a pinch they will eat insects or even suck juice from a fruit! This pair of 'Amakihis are perched on a Koli'i branch for breakfast. Time to eat!
I had a great time yesterday visiting with my friend Sheila and her daughter Gracie (a budding artist herself). We toured my little studio space, checked out the new bird bath and had breakfast with our buddy Kris:) Good fun!
