Icterus galbula (Baltimore Oriole) The Baltimore Oriole commonly occurs in eastern North America as a migratory breeding bird. Smaller and more slender than an American Robin, Baltimore Orioles are medium-sized, sturdy-bodied songbirds with thick necks and long legs. Look for their long, thick-based, pointed bills, a hallmark of the blackbird family they belong to. symbol,vector,illustration,icterid,northern,Chordata,Aves,Passeriformes,Icteridae,Icterus

Herpestes javanicus (Small Asian Mongoose) Native to India, introduced to Hawaii Island in 1883 (via Jamaica, where it was also introduced), then introduced to Maui, Molokai, and Oahu; none were introduced on the island of Kauai. Mongoose were imported by the sugar industry to control rats in cane fields. This infamous mistake was made without much knowledge about mongoose. Mongoose, which are active during the day, did not control the rats because the rats are primarily active at night. symbol,vector,illustration,invasive,introduced,'Iole manakuke,Chordata,Mammalia,Carnivora,Herpestidae,Herpestes

Batis maritima (Pickleweed) Pickleweed is an invasive or introduced plant in Hawaii. It has succulent, brilliant green leaves and is common in salt marshes and tidal shorelines. It grows slowly in soils with high salt concentrations and areas with seawater overwash where it suffers little competition from other plants. The species manages salts by sequestering them in cell vacuoles and eventually shedding the leaves. symbol,vector,illustration,flowering,plant,invasive,introduced,turtleweed,saltwort,beachwort,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Rosids,Brassicales,Bataceae
