Hawaii's State Bird - Nene

The Nene (pronounced "neh-neh") is a land bird and a variety of goose. It has adapted itself to life in the harsh lava country by transforming its webbed feet into a claw-like shape and modifying its wing structure for shorter flights. Hunting and wild animals all but destroyed the species until they were protected by law and a restoration project established in 1949. Click the image below for a page you can print and color.
