The Hawaiian state bird, the Nene, was a bird not known to Audubon in his time, and was therefore not included in the 1840 edition of Birds of America.

However, in keeping with Audubon's central theme of "wild birds native to North America", CMC has decided to include with this file a photograph and audio call of the Nene.
