"Junglefowl", male

Haena, Kauai, HI

The Red Junglefowl is the wild ancestor of all domestic chickens, and birds of this species were brought to Hawaii long ago by the Polynesian ancestors of the present-day native Hawaiians. Feral chickens like this one, with more or less of the original wild strain in them, roam freely in Kauai; this one has some features of the wild junglefowl, but is clearly a mixture.
