Caption: Hawaiian Gallinule (Gallinula chloropus sandvicensis), Ka'elepulu Wetlands, O'ahu, Hawaii. This bird is very secretive, usually remaining close to dense vegetation and hiding quickly when it senses danger. It is an endangered species, and endemic to Hawaii, with a total population perhaps in the hundreds. According to Hawaiian legend, the gallinule brought fire from the volcano home of the gods to the Hawaiian people. During its flight, the gallinule's formerly white forehead was burned red by the volcano's fire.
