The Search for Maui Birds on Ka'anapali Beach

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

I struggled with the headline of my new blog below about birds in Maui because I didn't want readers to think the birds were dead. Then I decided that was a creepy interpretation and people aren't that stupid. But you can't under-estimate the stupidity of other people. There are a lot of stupid people in the world.

On top of this, sometimes people are not always paying attention to life or even thinking so much as reacting -- I blame an overflow of technology and information coming at them from all places to the point people shut down -- and then they come across as stupid when they're just non-observant or not really here in the present.

So I decided to leave my headline alone and not alter it. You can read more and see all of the photographs I shot in my personal blog today at this link: Maui Birds Found on Ka'anapali Beach.

Lovely photos, Elizabeth. And I have to agree with the levels of stupidity out there. Here's what I think: (and let's face it, it's hard to fix stupid!)

Caroline Gerardo I found this cattle egret wandering around a bottom-floor unit, indeedy searching for food and completely oblivious to my presence.

Nina Hollander John Wayne wasn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, though. I lived with his legacy in Newport Beach when he lived there in the 1970s.

Good morning, Elizabeth -- what does it "reveal" about me that I didn't even consider that your headline could be mis-interpreted?

The photos in your blog post are very nice --  great colors and details.  I do agree with you about using any cell phone for mls/marketing purposes.   It's for the birds!   Not listings.

Michael Jacobs I think it reveals that you write straight-forward headlines, LOL. And I agree, that's a good way to put it, iPhone photos are for the birds, not real estate listings.

Interesting to see the different types of birds inhabiting Maui.  The pidgeon was my personal fav.

Those are bigger birds than we have. It must be all the insects and fish they eat. I enjoyed the photos, Elizabeth.

Interesting birds, when I mow my lawn they flock to the fresh cut grass, sometime 50 birds like in your picture.
