    Elua must mean two? In Māori it’s rua. I love the feeling of connection these similarities give.

      Yes! I love how the two languages are similar. I only know one song in Māori and the same one in Hawaiian. Both are poetry.

    I’m so glad your rhodies and azalea survived! That heatwave was no joke, for sure. I *love* that birdsong recognition app! We have white-crowned sparrows in our neighborhood too. We call them the “piggy wiggy bird,” because to our ears, it’s singing “I’m the piggy-wiggy bird!” (Experts say its call is “see me, pretty pretty me!”) And it’s so neat that your hummers are able to co-exist. Maybe it’s mating season? Thanks for sharing!

      I’m glad they survived, too. That heatwave…I’ve never experienced anything like it before.
      I love your “piggy-wiggy” birds!!! What a perfect name for them, better than the experts’ one. Although not always peacefully, the hummers do manage to co-exist… I keep putting up more feeders so they’re not fighting all the time!
