Hawaiian Hawk Visit
I had a visitor to the farm today. A juvenile Hawaiian Hawk ('lo) perched on a macadamia branch right behind the house for lunch. They have been on the endangered list since 1967 but are making a great recovery. This one let me watch it very close for quite some time, what a treat!
I am so excited for this! Can anyone guess what it is?
Vanilla! Seven flowers opened today - got a lot of practice pollinating. I hope they all take and start a bean. :)
