    Maria Costantini, a doctorate student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, is working with Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project and gently holds an endangered akekee in Kokee State Park.

A yellowish-green, masked bird flits through the ohia trees of Kauai’s Alakai Swamp, tagging lehua blossoms and searching for bugs.
