Maui Nui 'Alauahio or Maui Creepers

Hawaiian Honeycreepers

The Maui Nui ʻAlauahio or Maui Creeper (Paroreomyza montana) is finch in the Hawaiian honeycreeper subfamily, Drepanidinae that is endemic to Hawaii.

It is sometimes called the Maui 'Alauahio, but this name is misleading because it seems to have occurred on most if not all parts of the ancient Maui Nui.

Its natural habitats are dry, mesic and wet forests, as well as high and low shrublands and plantations. The continued existence of this species is threatened by habitat destruction.
