Friendly Francolin!

Since I got my new smart phone back in January, one thing I've appreciated is the ability to have a camera (of both the still and video varieties) with me at almost all times.  Monday while I was heading up to Hale Pōhaku for dinner I came across this friendly francolin in the parking lot. After it showed no signs of being bothered by my walking less than ten feet away from it, I decided to get some footage, since I can now.

Cute little feller, isn't he? (She? I can't tell from this distance.) Now if I ever see that mother francolin and her four chicks again...

  1. I saw her with her four chicks the last time I was there! I tried to get a picture of them but they were under a shade and the lighting was bad! They are so cute!

  2. Here's the picture with bad lighting: http://i42.tinypic.com/2i05caq.jpg

    I can spot two chicks from the picture.
