Rare Golden Hawaiian Hawk Sighting



This beautiful and endangered Golden Hawaiian Hawk has been frequently seen at the Holualoa Inn which is located on the slopes of Mount Hualalai on the Big Island of Hawaii. Although it is estimated that there are fewer than a couple thousand Golden Hawaiian Hawks remaining in the world, there are approximately 8-9 birds living in the area surrounding the Inn. We believe the birds like the elevation (the Inn is 1,400 feet above sea level), the neighboring Ohi’a trees, and the quiet, natural habitat necessary for feeding and nesting. The Holualoa Inn rests above 30 acres of tropical fruit and flower gardens and Kona Coffee trees; all of which is sustainably farmed without the use of pesticides.
