BIRD OF THE WEEK 

‘I’IWI

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.

ABC’s Hawai’i Program is working with the Hawai’i Division of Forestry and Wildlife and other partners on forest restoration projects — including the species’ preferred ‘ohi’a, koa, and mamane trees — on the Big Island and Maui. These projects improve habitat conditions for ‘I’iwi and other threatened forest birds, such as Palila and Maui Parrotbill.
