United States - Kauai - Baby Bird

A baby bird found in the Kukui’ula Shopping Center (another pedestrian almost stepped on it!) in Poipu on the island of Kauai in Hawai’i. This was found today 6/12/19 at 5:30 PM local Hawai’i time.

It is green with dark grey on the wings, about 3 inches long (maybe less), small black eyes, and an average beak that might curve slightly.

Does anyone know what bird this is?

(Let me know if the image is available, I’ll try to fix it if it is not)

Yes, the pic works


Not too sure what it is, but maybe Japanese White-eye (an introduced species on Hawaii)?

Japanese White-eye seems a good guess. Google results for fledgling Japanese White eye come up with very similar pics. Here's a link to one. https://www.istockphoto.com/photo/fl...9276-263854196

Yes they are introduced on every island of Hawaii... so I agree with Japanese White-eye.
