Akiapolaau

Hemignathus wilsoni (Rothschild, 1893)

The ʻAkiapōlāʻau (Hemignathus munroi), pronounced ah-kee-ah-POH-LAH-OW, is a species of Hawaiian honeycreeper, that is endemic to the island of Hawaii. Its natural habitats are dry and montane moist forests, and the only bird species on the island to occupy the woodpecker niche. The bird is 5.5 inches (14 cm) in length, and has an unusually curved beak-(a specialist species). The ʻAkiapolaʻau is a pudgy bird that has a whitish bottom and tail, black legs, yellow chest, orangish head, black face mask and bill and grey black wings. The male's song is either a loud, short "pit-er-ieu" or a rapid "warba-warba." Its various calls include an upslurred whistle, a short "cheedle-ee" warble, and a short "sweet." Source: Wikipedia
