Kaua`i’s native forest birds are vanishing. Five of 13 species have become extinct in the last 40 years.
Critically endangered are the puaiohi, `akikiki and `akeke`e.
Species have been lost with no records of song, behavior or appearance, devastating not only scientists, conservationists and cultural practitioners, but all of us!
