Hawaiian Duck (Koloa)

Postby bcas » Mon Nov 05, 2007 6:45 pm

Aloha:

I'm sure many of you never think about Hawaii and waterfowl together however, the islands do have their share of local and migratory birds.

The Hawaiian Duck (Koloa) is one waterfowl species living in Hawaii. Here is a link to some pictures of the Koloa: Hawaiian Duck Photos

Here is a PDF file of Koloa information from the Hawaii State website: Hawaii State Government. When in the website, perform a search for "Koloa" and the file will come up in the results. It has some very good information.

Currently it's estimated there are 2500 Hawaiian Ducks present in Hawaii (80% of those on Kauai'i).

More information to come.

Enjoy!

cjc: There is currently no waterfowl season in Hawaii. Even though Hawaii does get flight birds, I doubt they will have a season in the near future. :thumbsdown:

SO you cant hunt there. :huh:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

Yeah you can hunt here, just not ducks. Actually, you can hunt quite a few different upland game birds...pig and some other larger game also. I'll try and find the link and post it up later.

The Hawaiian duck is an awesome species, not the most colorful but pretty cool none the less.

Hawaii has three endemic (Hawaiian, Laysan teal, and Nene Goose) hope to have all three not too long from now mounted up together [captive raised of course :hammer: ].

Seems like many collectors forget about them being american species like any of the others we have here.

They aren't raised in captivity for the purpose of being sold. Actually, I doubt if they'll classified as anything but threatened in our lifetime. I don't even think there are a couple hundred Laysan Teals and maybe 1000 Nene total.

Wow, I never knew they were in that much trouble. I knew the nene were.... but I thought they made somewhat of a comeback. That sucks pretty much, well all you can do is try and help them out til the day they don't need it anymore which may be never.... considering the amount of habitat they lost.

They aren't forgotten, most hunting collectors don't want them because they can't shoot them for their collection. The point being to have a collection of birds that you have shot not just bought and paid for.

Really neat bird to have in captivity.

This is the world's rarest goose.[citation needed] The bird was once believed to be common, with approximately 25,000 nenes living in Hawai'i when Captain James Cook arrived in 1778.[1] However, hunting and introduced predators such as mongooses, pigs, and cats reduced the population to 30 birds by 1952.[1] However, this species breeds well in captivity, and has been successfully re-introduced; in 2004 it was estimated that there were 800 birds in the wild, as well as 1000 in wildfowl collections and zoos.[2] However, there is some concern of inbreeding due to the small initial population of birds. The nature reserve WWT Slimbridge in England was instrumental in the successful breeding of Nēnē geese in captivity. Under the direction of the leading conservationist Sir Peter Scott, it was bred back from the brink of extinction during the 1950s for later re-introduction into the wild in Hawaii. There are still nēnē geese at Slimbridge today.
