Report Your Kolea

Migratory shorebirds called Kolea in Hawaii, spend summer in Alaska raising chicks, and then fly to Hawaii for the winter. The purpose of this site is to record when, where, and how many Kolea migrate to Hawaii and how many spend summers here.
We divided the count into Little Counts and Big Counts. Report a bird in your yard or small park for Little Counts. To sign up for Big Counts, go to bit.ly/2BFwVXG and email your choice in Contact. For count directions, see Guidelines tab.

About

Named Kolea by ancient Hawaiians, this migratory shorebird has been part of Hawaii culture for centuries. Island Kolea are alert and personable, adapting to human presence, and to our grassy open spaces on which they spend their wintering season.
