HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaiian Word of the Day is o'o. O'o is a type of bird, a honey creeper to be exact, endemic to Hawaii. They are recognized by their nearly all black feathers, but the o'o have tufts of yellow feathers under each wing. Those feathers are extremely prized to feather workers. In older times, Hawaiians would catch the o'o, pick the yellow feathers from under their wings and then release them, in order to preserve the bird population. The Hawaiian Word of the Day is o'o.
