More than 300 species of seabirds range across the world’s oceans. In excess of 14 million birds, representing nearly two dozen species, make their home in the Hawaiian islands. These are na manu kai, the birds of the sea.

More than 135 color photographs illustrate this beautiful book showcasing the seabirds of Hawai‘i―from the far eastern tip of the Big Island to the recently created Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument. The monument encompasses the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and the surrounding waters, which together form the second largest marine wildlife reserve in the world. In addition to his spectacular photographs, the author shares the lessons he has learned during the many years spent with his camera in seabird colonies, providing an engaging personal perspective on life with seabirds.

Naturalists, wildlife biologists, birders, and others (including older children) who share an interest in the natural world and appreciate fine wildlife photography, will find this book a handy and informative resource on Hawai‘i’s birds of the sea as well as a delightful experience for the eye.138 color illus.

This softcover book features Hawaii's Albatrosses, Shearwaters, Petrels, Storm-Petrels, Tropic Birds, Boobies, Frigatebirds, Terns, and Noddies. The text is simple to understand, talks about the cultural significance of seabirds to the early Polynesians, discusses conservation efforts, has suggestions on how best to observe these birds, should you be fortunate enough to encounter them, and even gives basic photographic tips. The beautiful photos probably have been taken over the author's lifetime of studying these birds and give the reader pause to consider the thin thread by which these species cling to existence due to a variety of challenges posed to them by humankind.
Anyone who has an interest in Hawaii's seabirds would enjoy this book. It has been my experience, as a collector of Hawaiian books that they often go out of print rather quickly, so get a copy while you can.

THE BASICS:
softcover; 136 good color photographs show 23 seabird species found in Hawaii; 1-2 general paragraphs provide information description and natural history for each bird; a few brief chapters address birds in the Hawaiian culture, on conservation, and on photo tips

THE REVIEW:
This is a small version of what may be categorized as a coffee-table book. The primary intent of this book is to display nice photographs of Hawaii's seabirds while also offering a general overview of the bird's natural history background.

Each bird receives its own mini-chapter of 2-4 pages that includes 3-6 good color photographs. The birds are typically shown in flight or nesting on the ground. The larger sizes of many of the photos - which can take up a full page of this oblong 9x10-inch book - make them even more appealing. Using a landscape format page worked to the advantage of the photographer being able to show off a better photograph. Additional photos are peppered throughout the book showing the habitat, the ocean, conservation efforts, bird-related history, and a few other animals of the region. Some of the animals include the Hawaiian Monk Seal, Green Sea Turtle, Spinner Dolphin, and one photo each of the endemic Nihoa Millerbird and the Laysan Finch.

The 1-2 pages of text that accompanies each bird offer a general description of the bird along with notes on its natural history. These notes discuss the bird's breeding, nesting, and feeding behaviors. Although the information is not extensive, it still gives the casual birder a nice introduction and overview of the bird.

Three other short chapters (2-4 pages each) talk about the role of seabirds in Hawaiian culture and about the conservation efforts necessary for many of the species. Another single page offers tips on how to photograph birds.

Nature enthusiasts who may want to learn a little more about the birds circling around them during a stroll along a Hawaiian beach will find this book both attractive and informative. - (written by Jack at Avian Review with sample pages, November 2009)

I ran across this book by accident, looking for material about Hawai'i. It's a short book, a fast read, and the photographs are the main feature. They are technically excellent and overall range from very good to superb. Many photos depict hatchlings and fledglings, and some are really, really cute.

One point the book makes is that Hawai'i does not end with the main islands (it's thought that a couple once had a few inhabitants), but continue on as far as Midway. This includes Niihoa, Laysan, Ni'ihau, the Lisianskis, French Frigate Shoals, Gardner Pinnacles and more. They are all part of Hawai'i, if not visited much. Some of these birds are quite rare on the main islands. Some of the areas are now refuges for birds, and all the islands have been damaged by human action, especially killing huge numbers of birds for feathers a hundred years ago and from World War 2. Rats accidentally introduced by the Navy have been a serious problem. Several shots show some of the islands and give the reader a sense of how small and isolated these places are.

The text accompanying the photos is rather good. One section could have been longer to be more useful, a short section titled "The Cultural Connection."
