Fern found on the North Shore of Oahu (hawaii), wet forest. Also, if you happen to know the type of fern behind the one in the front. Thanks!

If they were in California, I'd say Holly Fern (Cyrtomium falcatum) and Five Finger Fern (adiantum aleuticum). Cyrtomium caryotideum is native to Hawaii but doesn't look as glossy to me in the picture I'm looking at. There are lots of different maiden hair ferns (Adiantum), but that's about as close a guess as I'd make.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

I agree That's what they look like to me also.
