hawaii 'elepaio

Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge, Hawaii

 

This sweet little guy is the oldest known 'elepaio of any species, at 23 years old, as identified by his three bands of bling. Jack recognized him straight away and said he had been there for his last banding to count the candles on his cake!
