Snorkeling in Shark Cove

Category: Hawaii,scuba,Travel

Shark cove is on Oahu’s north shore, an area beloved by surfers. This cove has some of the best snorkeling on the island during the summer. I’d love to dive there as well. Even the most casual swimmer can see a great variety of life in the shallows.

After snorkeling, I saw these adorable little birds – common waxbills, not a native.

Here you can see the birds foraging, eating grass seeds. They weigh so little that their weight barely bends the grass.
