Birdsong in Kahalu’u Bay_Kona

Adventure awaits as I had read in through a text from my friend one week ago! I had no plans to travel to Hawaii in that moment and it took me 1/2-of-a-day of “Oh, wow! Oh, I can’t! Oh, but I must! Oh, but what about…?” to checking flights and jumping in. I’m normally a planner and not someone to hop a plane to a beautiful island in a moment’s notice. Alas, I’m not the normal me anymore because here I AM!

After I exited the plane and drove to my destination, I was in the sublime blue water snorkeling within an hour because my pal, Melinda, is awesome and she was ready to go.

“Here’s the gear! Try this! Make sure this mask fits right. Let’s tighten those fins…”

It’s not even 24-hours since I arrived and we have witnessed gorgeous tropical fish swimming and eating in the coral (and with them, a ton of their spring babies!), recorded morning birds (stay tuned), and visited the local Farmer’s Market. Wahoo!

Here are a few of the morning birdsongs I recorded. They are in 1-ish-minute segments as the morning sunrise from 5:30 a.m. progressed for one hour. Each new segment presents more distinctive birdsongs. The quick flutters are birds flying by the recorder. Put on some headphones and enjoy!

Birds at 5:30 a.m – they are just getting started at the first hint of day
Birds at 5:40 a.m. – gaining some momentum as the light of day intensifies a bit
5:55 a.m. and a whole new crop of songs enter the landscape
And finally at 6:10 a.m. – even more songs though a bit quieter again
Birds sing just beyond this happy foot.
