November 2022 - Don't be Suspicious
45% of proceeds will go bird conservation organiztions.
ʻĀkiapōlāʻau are an incredibly unique bird, but one really unusual thing about them is their bimodal breeding pattern. The majority of birds breed in the summer, but a subset of them breed in November. So in honor of those birds aki get the month of November. In this image, I couldnʻt figure out what was agitating the bird, I thought I may be near a nest or something and went to move out of the way when I startled an ʻIo out of a koa tree behind me answering the question of who was cuasing the aki to be so alert.
