A Wary Gray Francolin

Location:  Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This Gray Francolin (Francolinus pondicerianus) is approaching the ground feeder in our garden, but there is a bit of hesitation in her step.  She is wary, because she notices that Buster the cat is watching her -- and she probably sees the photographer, too.  In the end, hunger overcame fear, and the bird went to the feeder for its breakfast of sunflower seeds and millets.
