BIRD OF THE WEEK

HAWAI‘I ‘AMAKIHI

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Chlorodrepanis virens
POPULATION: Approximately 800,000–900,000
TREND: Stable
HABITAT: Forests and shrubland at a wide range of elevations

One of the most common and adaptable of Hawaiian honeycreepers, the Hawai‘i ‘Amakihi is found in all types of habitat, from sea level to 9,500 feet.

Its presence at lower elevations seems to indicate that this species is evolving a tolerance to avian malaria, a disease spread by non-native mosquitoes that has driven species such as the ‘I‘iwi, a spectacular red honeycreeper, to higher elevations.
