In an earlier post about our African safari last June we talked about our very pleasant surprise in discovering the birds of Tanzania and the Serengeti.
The wild birds in Maui also gave us pause. Not to be outdone by the wild roosters that inhabit Key West, Florida; Maui also has its “indigenous” wild chickens that are all over the island. Feral cats also abound but the cats stay clear of the roosters as they seem to consider a confrontation a losing situation.
They roam the streets with impunity…
seem for the most part to be quite healthy… and seem to virtually own the parks.
They are protected, have no natural enemies, and therefore prosper.
While the roosters are usually more flamboyant… There are plenty of hens
Ok; I just could not resist that!
