These geese are nēnē (nay nay) geese from Hawaii. Here are some interesting facts about them:

  • The nēnē goose is the state bird of Hawaii.
  • There is a lot of concern about the decreasing numbers of the nēnē goose in Hawaii.
  • The name “nēnē” comes from the sound of their soft calls, which sound like “nay nay.”
  • Their feet are only half-webbed, which allows them to more easily walk and run across the rocky, uneven terrain of lava beds. (kewl!)
