I went to Hawaii one time :thumbsup: and my brother got his head stuck between the bars on our hotel balcony. He told us that he was just looking at the dolphins under the hotel. After about an hour my parents got suspicous and we had to grease him up good with soap to get his head out. I don't remember seeing any ducks, but that was about 15 years ago and we got a great story out of the whole deal. Sadly my brother has night terrors about dolphins and hotels :toofunny:
Hawaii does have ducks. In fact, they are a relative to Mallards...
Here is waht the USFWS had to say: A very shy, dark brown duck, the Hawaiian duck is in danger from both loss of wetland habitat and genetic swamping through interbreeding with feral Mallard Ducks. (it known to Hawaiians as the Koloa maoli -"native duck")
There is also
-Hawaiian Coot (endgangered)
-Laysan Duck (endangered)
-Hawaiian Geese - Branta sandvicensis - a not so distant relative of Canada Geese, that is also the state bird of Hawaii. According to DU it is one of the most threatened of all waterfowl.
None of these species migrate. Most have no land based predators and a very small range.
So correct me if I am wrong but it doesn't seem like you can duck hunt in Hawaii. There are however several species of pheasant, quail, chukar, doves and partridge.
