All 'Akepa have an unusual cross-bill. When closed, the upper bill tip overlaps either to the right or left of the lower bill tip; this small overlap cannot be seen in the field. When opening the bill, as in prying open leaf buds on native Ohia trees to extract arthropod prey, the bill swings sideways, and this is easily seen in the hand. The Akepa uses this bill in a similar fashion to the North American Crossbills . This species is usually found above 1,100 meters up to 2,200 meters above sea level. 'Akepa are often found in small groups, including displays by multiple males, and in mixed-species flocks during the non-breeding season.

The Akepa is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

WAIMEA, Hawaii—The Hawaii akepa is a tiny bird, about the size of a small finch, and where its scarlet cousin the I'iwi is spectacular and another cousin, the akohekohe, is an amazing blend of black, red, and orange, the akepa's beauty is more humble. While the males are brilliant orange, the females feature more muted colors that blend into mountain forests. Listen to Hawaii Public Radio's story on the annual meeting of the AAAS Pacific Division.

The akepa fledglings that were seen were noticeably underweight. Other native birds had many broken wing and tail feathers—a sign of malnutrition—and suffered from a major increase in chewing lice. The researchers sounded an alarm, alerting the US Fish and Wildlife Service of the problem, but nothing was done, and two-thirds of the akepa in their long-term study site had disappeared by 2006.
