The Hawai'i 'Amakihi is a Hawaiian finch and one of the Hawaiian honeycreepers. These small birds are found on the Big Island, Maui, and Moloka'i.
Historically, there were at least 51 different species of Hawaiian honeycreeper. Today around 21 species are still found on the Hawaiian islands. All but two of them are considered vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. Along with the 'Apapane, the Hawai'i 'Amakihi is one of the most common honeycreepers in Hawaii, with a conservation status of Least Concern.
Hawai'i 'Amakihis have a varied diet, and are found in many different habitat types on the islands. This adaptability may contribute to its survival success when compared to the other honeycreeper species.
