In 2003, we renamed the CCH Newsletter, Hawaii Conserver, to celebrate the kōlea (Pacific Golden Plover, Pluvialis fulva). Kōlea fly nonstop to Hawaii from nesting grounds in the Siberian tundra and western Alaska each fall. They feed on insects and other foods in Hawaii, fattening up for the return flight by May. Kōlea are one of the most frequently seen native birds in Hawaii, faithfully returning to the same habitat year after year.
