ʻIʻiwi (Maui and Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project)

Like so many island species, the 'I'iwi is beautifully adapted to the plants that share its evolutionary history. Its long, downward-curving bill is specialized for sipping nectar from tubular flowers. Although ‘i‘iwi populations appear stable on the islands of Hawai‘i, Maui, and Kaua‘i, they are likely susceptible to the same factors that threaten other native Hawaiian forest birds, including: loss and degradation of habitat, predation by introduced mammals, and disease.
