Hawai’i’s native bird populations are struggling, with almost two-thirds of Hawaiian forest birds listed as Endangered or Threatened.

The island of Hawai’i, otherwise known as the “Big Island,” has recently been in the news due to the eruption of Kilauea and the devastation this has brought to local r, the island’s ecosystems and biodiversity have been in danger. Another idea shaken by the bones is the makeup of the pristine, native Hawaiian ecological communities.

All of the common forest birds found today in Hawaii are nearly absent in the fossil record. Notably rare are the nectar eating honeycreepers such as Iiwi, Apapane, and Amakihi that dominate the native forests today.

Eventually many Hawaiian forest bird populations declined or went extinct. Further, introduced diseases such as avian malaria and pox devastated and confined the surviving native forest bird populations from recovering.

While the story of Hawaiian native forest birds is a sad one, the future of native birds is hopeful and exciting. This list of bird species introduced to the Hawaiian Islands includes only those species known to have established self-sustaining breeding populations as a direct or indirect result of human intervention.

A complete list of all non-native species ever imported to the islands, including those that never became established, would be much : Provinces, Alberta, British Columbia. A new study published in Global Change Biology, by researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, assesses how global climate change will affect future malaria risk to native Hawaiian bird populations in the coming century.

Mosquito-carried diseases such as avian pox and avian malaria have been devastating native Hawaiian forest birds. Forest birds, especially, are often small and green:ml trqucntl.
