The 'i'iwi is a Hawaiian honeycreeper that was once found on all main Hawaiian islands. 'I'iwi populations are on the decline due to many threats, including: habitat loss, avian malaria (a disease spread by invasive mosquitoes), and predation by introduced predators (cats, rats, and mongoose). This iconic bird of Hawai'i is both culturally and ecologically significant. The bill of the 'i'iwi is perfectly shaped for pollinating many native Hawaiian plants.
