ENDANGERED HABITATS – Great day visiting native Hawaiian ecosystems to see endangered and native Hawaiian birds on the Big Island of Hawaii. Great guide who was a very experienced birdwatcher and extremely knowledgeable. Was a really great day.

Our guide, Amanda, was amazing. She was so knowledgable about the places we visited and made the whole day so delightful. She even brought mosquito replant, snacks, water, and was very attentive to our needs.

Gary, our guide, was excellent. He provided a lot of info about the plants and trees and was able to find key birds very quickly. He was very energetic and took great care of the group.

Mike was an excellent guide. He gave very helpful tips throughout the hike. He never made me feel badly or unable to complete the hike, even though I am a very inexperienced hiker. Beautiful waterfalls!!!
