Hawaiian Nene

These endangered geese are endemic to Hawaii, though thought to be descended from Canada geese.  They are the world's rarest geese.  There are an estimated 2,500 left, found only on the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui and Hawai'i.  This female was photographed on Kauai in December 2014.
