Vestiaria coccinea (Forster, JG, 1780)

The ʻIʻiwi (Vestiaria coccinea), pronounced ee-EE-vee, is a "hummingbird-niched" species of Hawaiian honeycreeper and the only member of the genus Vestiaria. It is one of the most plentiful species of this family, many of which are endangered or extinct. The ʻIʻiwi is a highly recognizable symbol of Hawaiʻi. The ʻIʻiwi is the third most common native land bird in the Hawaiian Islands. Large colonies of ʻIʻiwi inhabit the islands of Hawaiʻi and Kauaʻi, with smaller colonies on Molokaʻi and Oʻahu. ʻIʻiwi were extirpated from Lānaʻi in 1929. Altogether, the remaining populations total 350,000 individuals, but are decreasing. Source: Wikipedia
