The bird is considered to be an active singer. The males are known for their singing patterns at all times of the day. They have six different calls and about ten different recorded song patterns. The contact call or song of a male ʻApapane is mainly used for mate attraction and breeding. The male who is most aggressive and sings the loudest is the one who wins the females' attention. Once courtship and pair formation has been established, and copulation is complete, both male and female ʻApapane are involved in the nesting process. The male role is important for maintaining courtship feeding during the nest construction and incubation period. The male ʻApapane sings continuously during incubation, while the female does not sing at all. His loud whistling, and chirping sound chases other male birds away from the nesting tree, while he sits on an adjacent perch guarding the nest. The ʻApapane has two distinct flight patterns: straight flight and a circling flight.

tagging native birds and had caught a bright scarlet Apapane in their mist net. They provided myself and the rest of the school children a quick and fleeting glimpse of that small, frail Apapane and then banded it and set it free to once more grace the O'hia forest. They also told me of the plight of the native birds and how non-native predation by the mongoose, rat and wild boar and the spread of avian malaria continued to take a toll on native Hawaiian bird diversity.

Oahu ApapaneThe Hawaiian Islands are surrounded by a lot of ocean, but somehow a finch arrived there several million years ago. Perhaps it was a little storm-blown flock that managed to stay together until they made landfall. Or possibly it was a single pregnant female. The result of that event is science's favorite textbook example of "adaptive radiation." With no competition except from other birds of its own kind, the finch "radiated" into 28 species of Hawaiian honeycreepers. More
