First Oahu nene since 1700s likely from Big Island

By Associated Press

KAHUKU, Hawaii (AP) A federal biologist says a pair of endangered Hawaiian geese that have hatched goslings and settled on Oahu's north shore were probably on their way back to Kauai from the Big Island when they stopped in Kahuku.

Annie Marshall of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Wednesday the nene pair were taken from Kauai to the Big Island within the last two years as part of a program to move geese away from lagoons next to the Lihue airport.

They are the first Hawaiian geese to make a home on Oahu since at least the 1700s. They were first observed on the island around Jan. 9.

Wildlife officials say another pair of nene were spotted at Makapuu on Oahu's south shore but they didn't stay.
