Maui is home to hundreds of different bird species. This, along with the relative ease of getting to many great bird watching locations, makes Maui bird watching a very popular vacation hobby. Most of the Maui bird photos used for this Maui bird guide were provided by Janine Russell. A huge mahalo to Janine Russell! If you would like to see more of her beautiful photography, her galleries can be found at webshots and Better Photo. For more information about Maui bird watching, you can visit the Hawaii Audubon Society.

Some of the best spots for Maui bird watching are Kanaha Beach Park in Kahului, Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge in Kihei, Hosmer Grove in Haleakala National Park, and the Waikamoi Nature Trail on the Road to Hana. It is also not uncommon to see a large number of beautiful Maui birds right on your hotel or condo grounds.

If you would like a chance to see Maui birds in a pristine setting, on the second Saturday of every month (weather permitting), the Hawaii Nature Conservancy leads a hike into the Waikamoi Cloud Forest on the slopes of Haleakala. The hike is roughly three miles and is mildly strenuous. This area of the park, often rainy and muddy, is only open to visitors who are accompanied by the Nature Conservancy.

Please call their Maui office at least a week in advance at (808) 572-7849 to take advantage of this wonderful Maui bird watching opportunity, and be prepared with proper footwear, warm clothing and rain gear.

If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 1-888-700-3764.
