The Hawaiian Crow or ʻAlalā (Corvus hawaiiensis) The Hawaiian Crow is now extinct in the wild.

While some 109 individuals remain (as of Oct 2012) in captive breeding facilities, attempts to reintroduce captive-bred birds into the wild have been hampered by predation by the Hawaiian Hawk, which is listed as Near Threatened.

The Palila is an endangered Hawaiian bird which is located primarily on the southwestern slope of Mauna Kea, the tallest mountain on the Big Island of Hawaii. It uses its strong, finch-like bill for opening mamane pods (a flowering plant in the pea and bean family endemic to Hawaii) to obtain the immature seeds as its primary food source, and the species shares a close ecological relationship with the plant.
