DIET AND HABITAT
However our high elevation of home and food bares no hospitality to the mosquitoes and keep us quite alive from their taint, and as such allow us to make our nests in the treetop canopies of Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai. Sadly however the lower elevations and the hardier climates Oahu and Molokai hold small communities of our species which live in conservation areas, leaving Lanai with no known living I'iwi. Because of all of these unique environments in our life and the climate and habitat of Hawaii, we do not migrate in a fixed directional pattern but altitudinally among the Islands.
THE CHANGING OF OUR HABITAT OVER THE YEARS
HOW MANY OF US ARE LEFT AND WHAT CAN HELP US REFLOURISH OURSELVES
OUR ANCESTORS AND CHANGE
From the anatomy between us I`iwi and the rosefinches our bodies and appearance have changed drastically from feather color, to beak size, shape, flexibility, and skeletal structure. From the chart above we do not have much in common with any other species besides the Akepa bird which shares our feather pattern and colors. However there were plentiful amounts of similar honeycreepers like us I`iwi they have all but gone extinct leaving us to continue the legacy and be the best birds we were born to be.
