I gave a tour of the Saddle on Sunday, mostly to visit rare or interesting plants and good habitats on Powerline Road and in the kipukas around Kaumana Trail. The weather was fog and rain all day long, yet somehow I still got a bad sunburn!
Since we were motoring around to get from place to place, and the weather was very wet, we paid little attention to birds. In the 1881 lava flow kipukas we didn't hear or encounter any of the endangered birds until we got to the lower end...
