This luck duckling is in paradise on the wonderful island of Maui. The native Hawaiian name for the Hawaiian duck is koloa maoli
The Hawaiian Duck included all of the main Hawaiian islands except the island of Lānaʻi. Now the Hawaiian Duck only exists on the island of Kauaʻi. The Hawaiian Duck was extirpated on all other islands, but was subsequently reestablished on Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, and Maui through release of captive-reared birds. However, all the Hawaiian Ducks in the reestablished populations have bred with feral Mallard ducks and have produced hybrid offspring consequently, “pure” Hawaiian Ducks are still only found on Kauaʻi.
