Kauai has never attempted an official program to eradicate them or to reduce its population. Since they have never been deemed a health threat to the community nothing has been done. Its only their constant crowing even when the sun rises that is a considered a nuisance especially to the tourists. Guess the locals are used to all the racket.
While out shopping I have found the rooster image quite a boost to the economy with souvenirs, clothing items like T-shirts that proclaim the rooster as the "official bird of Kauai".
The past two days have provided us with many "Kodak moments"
