We have a knack of making a turn just because. This one as we were leaving Hanalei interested me because someone had pulled off and wer taking photos. So I did too but i didn't stop right at the turn. I went further on down the road and found all sorts of birds to photograph from the car. Further down was a parking area for the wild life reserve. Off the beaten path and not a lot of people here. Great for birding and birders.

We saw several ducks and a coupe nene and of course white coastal birds. It is a nice drive and the trees and scenery are quite nice.

I arrived 20 minutes prior to closing and was still required to pay $10 to visit. The scenery is beautiful, a lot of birds nesting, geese and the lighthouse (already closed.) make sure you arrive early so you have lots of time to walk around and visit everything.

This place was beautiful. We took multiple pictures and enjoyed watching the birds. The giftshop was great also!

This is a lovely lookout on the main road. Unfortunately, we did not see a lot of birds, only chickens.

Today we visited a small viewpoint from the maim highway to Hanelei. It was overlooking the National Wildlife Refugee. We could see that it was cery beautiful and appreciated the nice view.

It’s a narrow road and because locals use it, it’s best to park at the Okolehao trail lot and get out and walk a bit. The taro fields are the attraction for various birds and if you are a bird watcher, you will find this place of interest.

The area was badly damaged during the recent Hurricane that hit the islands, but is making a great comeback. The taro fields have been replanted and there have been a lot of birds return to the area. Take your time and take a slow drive through the area.

If you want to see birds this site will have many to see. The problem is finding the road. When you cross the one land bridge make the immediate left on to the narrow road and keep driving. Please drive very slow because the birds are always crossing the road. The road will continue to be narrow to the end and their is no facility you can visit. It’s just a narrow road thru the land with water where some water birds can visit.

We enjoy this slow and peaceful drive through the taro fields. You get a closer look at the stilts, mud hens, hawaiian ducks, nene', coots, and plovers. This year we were rewarded with a long look at a Tundra swan who had wandered into the area. Further down the road, we found some monarch butterflies who were enjoying the afternoon amongst some introduced milkweed.
