|Deer village in Kofiau islands|
When we did field training in the main Kofiau island, we saw various species of birds including Little-pied Cormorant, Oriental Dollarbird, Black Sunbird, Singing Starling, Willie Wagtail, Eastern Reef Egret, Wandering Whistling Duck, Kofiau Paradise Kingfisher, and White-bellied Sea Eagle. I brought a Kinglux Birding Scope and a tripod to help participants of the training use the birding device and identify birds that they saw. The next afternoon, I saw the Kofiau Monarch, Sacred Kingfisher, Torresian Crow, in the south-west end of Deer island.
Coconut trees stood along the coastal area of islands in Kofiau. I saw some yellow flowers. I did not bring my pocket camera at that time. So, I took out my tablet and made two photographs of the flowers. They were not very sharp but good enough for identification. They were Beach Hibiscus (Hibiscus tiliaceus)
