BIRD OF THE WEEK — BLUE-EYED GROUND DOVE

With a population estimated at just 16 birds, the Blue-eyed Ground-Dove is one of the rarest birds in Brazil, a country that’s home to many rare species found nowhere else.

This small dove is named for its vivid blue eyes, which match the spots on its wings and contrast with the rest of its rich tawny and rufous plumage.

BIRD OF THE WEEK — ‘I’IWI — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

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.

I'iwi, Michael Walther, Oahu Nature Tours

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.
