While a cattle egret made an emergency landing.pacific golden plover flock 01

Steady winds of 30 to 60 mph pounded the state of Hawaii over the past two days. That's crazy considering a tropical depression has winds of 38 mph or less.

While most birds was laying low, the Pacific golden plovers was going about business as usual. I had seen a small flock of plovers endure a powerful blast of air -- head-on! It looked like they was flying in slow motion.

Meanwhile, a cattle egret nearly slammed into a parked vehicle during a powerful gust. It sought refuge in a busy parking lot where it was severely stressed by both the wind and humans. It stayed there for about 30 minutes. It tried to move to a roof top but the wind prevented it from landing, so it flew in the direction of the wind.
