Io Lani - The Hawaiian Hawk

Product Description
$24.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

A symbol of Hawaiian royalty—indomitable, swift, strong, and fierce—‘io, the Hawaiian hawk, Buteo solitarius, also represents a Hawai‘i that has remained unchanged from its earliest days of wild splendor. Blown from their customary migratory route between North America and South America, the first birds arrived before human voyagers discovered the Islands over a thousand years ago. Buteo solitarius is now a threatened species and found only on the island of Hawai‘i; its population estimated to be less than three thousand birds.

W. S. Chillingworth’s photographs, evidence of his deep reverence for the bird, a creature that is the most vivid expression of life, are both transcendent as images and a valuable contribution to the study of this rare native. The photographs remind us of our kinship with wild creatures, many of them clinging to an increasingly precarious existence, as well as of our responsibility to preserve and protect them.
