Hawaii is known for its incredible diversity of flora and fauna. That is to say that we have an amazing variety of plants and animals. They are what make Hawaii one of the most exotic vacation destinations in the world, but having a lot of animals around can sometimes be a bad thing, especially when it comes to birds.
The solar-powered Solar Impulse 2 plane began its trip around the world in Abu Dhabi on March 9, 2015. The record-setting trip is divided into 13 arduous stages, with each leg lasting for days. The plane had just completed its eighth stage when it landed in Honolulu on July 3, 2015, but due to necessary repairs on the battery packs, the highly technical vessel was grounded until April 2016. Up until that point the plane spent countless hours soaring with the birds, but now that it was “keeping its feet on the ground,” the goal was to keep the birds out.
For those of us who live here in the state of Hawaii, we know all-too-well what a mynah bird is. It is an aggressive, highly invasive, and very smart, territorial bird with a brown body, black hooded head, and bare yellow patch behind its eyes. Its beak and legs are also yellow. And, these birds can be found hanging out in pairs, feeding on things such as fruit, grains, seeds, insects, spiders, crustaceans and small reptiles.
