I do sometimes get a little grumpy about those muumuus reminding me as they do of missionaries who Always know in every single detail just Exacty what YOU better be doing (or it's hellfire for you!). But I digress.

The ladies in the black muumuus have taken this bird as their symbol. I couldn't quite get what it is they do as a group. Here's what the picture says:

"The Mamo, a honeycreeper, subsisted almost entirely on nectar, and was especially partial to tubular flowers of several species of lobelias. The Mamo was highly prized for the few yellow feathers it grew at the base of its tail. The birds were not common and the last specimens were collected about 1907. No one has seen a Mamo since that time."
