The Akikiki is classified as Critically Endangered (CR), facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Akikiki builds a simple open-cup nest between March and May, perhaps only in ohi'a trees. Threats One of the least understood of all surviving birds on the Hawaiian Islands but likely faces the same threats confronting other native birds: habitat loss and alteration, introduction of alien species, mosquito-borne diseases, and impacts from natural events such as hurricanes.

Hawaiian Birds - Akikiki Breeding - Directory of KauaiThe `Akikiki, a Hawaiian honeycreeper endemic to the island of Kaua‘i, builds a simple open-cup nest between March and May. The nest is composed primarily of a moss exterior and a lining of strips of ‘ohi’a bark, plant rootlets, and other fine plant fibers. Using materials gathered from live ‘öhi‘a trees, and constructing their nests in ‘öhi‘a trees, camouflages their nests making them difficult to detect. More

First on the list is Hawaii's Akikiki or Kaua'i creeper, a type of native honeycreeper. Nearly all of Hawaii's endemic birds have been decimated by introduced species. But it's the mosquito — accidentally introduced to the islands in the early 1800s by European colonizers — that has most damaged the Akikiki by spreading avian malaria. The last safe haven for the birds lies in the high-altitude, cool mountains of Kauaʻi — a place too cool for mosquitoes to thrive. Global warming is on track to take away this safe place. More
