Hawaii creeper

The Hawaiʻi Creeper is similar to treecreepers in that it is able to climb up and down trees. It uses its short, sharp beak to probe bark for insects residing underneath. If available, it will sip nectar from koa or ʻōhiʻa lehua .

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

The Hawaii Creeper is found in ungrazed, wet mixed forests of koa and More

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

We carefully observed Hawaii Creepers in the field for extended periods of time and characterized those features most useful in distinguishing them from Amakihi and other species similar in sound or appearance. During observations of birds thought to be creepers, we recorded the bases on which we made our identification. We noted whether songs, calls or movements initially caught our attention. More

Rainforest & Dryforest? The Akepa and Hawaii Creeper are found in Hakalau Forest, while the Palila is found on the Rainforest & Dryforest Adventure. 4. Is it possible to use a spotting scope? Due to the behavior of Hawaii's endemic birds, the use of a spotting scope can be challenging. If you feel up to the test, we do encourage you to bring your own birdwatching gear. More

The Hawaii Creeper was federally listed as Endangered in 1975. Current U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recovery plans call for additional surveys, investigating how populations are limited, preserving and restoring habitat, and developing a public relations campaign. Populations are protected within the Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge. Efforts are underway to remove feral ungulates, especially pigs. More
