White-rumped Shama

I took this photo of the White-rumped Shama at Foster Botanical Garden in downtown Honolulu. It was introduced to Kauai in 1931, Oahu in 1940 and Maui in the late 1900s in an effort to supplement the native fauna. They also occur on Molokai and Lanai. They are commonly found in valley forests and on the ridges of the southern Ko'olaus. They are Indigenous to Southeast Asia, India, and some Indonesian Islands.
