Owl found on Haiku hike


A Haiku resident came across this owl in a puddle while walking her dogs in an abandoned pineapple field near the Haiku Community Center on Friday afternoon. Deborah Waltrip initially thought that the bird was dead, but it moved when she touched it. She covered the bird with her T-shirt and brought it home. Waltrip said she planned to turn over the bird to the Boo Boo Zoo, or East Maui Animal Refuge, and was not sure what species the owl was.
