Hawaiian Goose or Nene Goose, Banto sandcivensis
These birds are found primarily on the islands of Hawaii and Maui. They have a call that is similar to that of a Canada Goose and sometimes can be mistaken as that of the voice of a cow “moo.”
They begin nesting in November laying 2-5 eggs on average in down nests that are concealed for safety. They often roost on the slopes of Mauna Kea. They snack primarily on native plants.
