This bird is only found on Oahu. It was introduced from Africa sometime
in the late 1970's. This bird is very shy. It travels in large groups
of individuals that are most easily recognized by their call as they fly
away. The easiest place to see them is in large open grass fields where
they are found eating weed seeds.
