The ʻAkiapōlāʻau is a species of finch in the Hawaiian honeycreeper subfamily, Drepanididae, 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 Akiapolaau is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
Akiapolaau and a great number of other species throughout the U.S. and its territories. Unfortunately, the refuge system is often under-funded during the U.S. government's budgeting process.

Akiapolaau, 49% of its Hawaii Creeper, 72% of its Hawaii Akepa, and 30% of the area's Iiwi population. Moreover, populations of 6 native species - Hawaii Amakihi, Akiapolaau, Hawaii Creeper, Hawaii Akepa, Iiwi, and Apapane - have shown significant increases in density since the area was first surveyed during the Hawaii Forest Bird Surveys in 1977. Only one alien species, the Northern Cardinal, was found to have increased in density, whereas Japanese White-eye density has declined since 1977. More

Akiapolaau used koa (Acacia koa) for foraging much more than expected based on koa availability, and most Akiapolaau occurred in old-growth koa and ohia (Metrosideros polymorpha forests. Male Akiapolaau most often foraged on the trunks and large branches of koa, whereas females used small branches and twigs. The longer bill of males is apparently adapted to the greater bark thickness of larger branches. More
did not match the only nest apparently belonging to the Akiapolaau in the B.P. Bishop Museum in Hololulu, where Bryan worked. Twigs and bark were distinctively combined in the nest that we examined. We compare eggs and nests of Akiapolaau with those of other Hawaiian honeycreepers. Purpose: To describe the eggs, nests, and nesting behavior of Akiapolaau (Drepanidinae). More
