The dwindling numbers of the Hawaiian hawk, 1889.


When Captain Cook came upon the island of Kauai and his two ships docked in Waimea, the kamaaina showed him a number of large birds. Captain Cook’s journals say that he saw a Pueo, an Aukuu, and an Io.

These days, we see indeed the Owl [Pueo] and Heron [Aukuu], but who sees the Hawk [Io]? The Io is skilled at snatching chickens and small birds.

If some kamaaina is able to find and catch an Io, V. Knudsen of Waiawa, Mana, is always prepared to pay $10 for it; and for a pair, $15; and for three, $20.

If the bird is live, be careful with the feathers and do not harm them and have them fall off; and so too if it is dead. Also be careful lest it rots, and put a few drops of kerosene in its beak to ward off rotting.
