Catching Oo in Hamakua, 1866.


Bird catching.—We received a letter from T. P. Kaaeae of Hamakua, Hawaii, telling that the men and women of that place are going up into the wilderness in great numbers to catch birds. And the number of birds a person is catching in a day is from six to thirty. The bird they are catching is the Oo of the forest.

(Kuokoa, 3/17/1866, p. 2)
