|Abstract:||Twelve bird species were detected at 29 count stations located throughout Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park. Each station was counted once during the fall of 1992 and again during the spring of 1993. Significantly higher bird numbers per station and more bird species per station were detected during the spring count. Two of the species (17%) were indigenous migratory shorebirds and the other ten (83%) were introduced non-native species. The high percent of non-native species in the avifauna, and conversely the lack of endemic or indigenous bird species, can be attributed directly or indirectly to centuries of human influence.|
