What’s a Kolea?

Have you seen one of these unique birds?

Kolea (KO-LAY-AH) is also called the  “Pacific Golden Plover“.  The Kolea is usually found in places such as front lawns, ballparks, parking lots, beaches and in low-vegetation mountain areas. At night, they often roost on rooftops. Kolea are found year-round except during the summer when they migrate for a 2-day, 3000-mile trip to Alaska. Kolea can fly for long periods at 50 to 60 mph and often live more than 20 years.

Unlike the kolea, your 3000-mile trip (or less) from the mainland should be faster than 50 mph and 2 days!  And you do not need to sleep on the roof!  We have units available for late summer, so come and visit!  See our availability at or 1 855 HULA NOW.
