  • 'Elepaio, Chasiempis sandwichensis, (Endangered) : The ‘Elepaio is a monarch flycatcher endemic to Hawaii. and the only species of its genus. It inhabits Big Island, O‘ahu and Kaua‘i in no less than 5 different subspecies. Being one of the most adaptable native birds of the archipelago, no subspecies have yet become extinct, though two have become quite rare nowadays. The ‘elepaio is the first native bird to sing in the morning and the last to stop singing at night; apart from whistled and chattering contact and alarm calls, it is probably best known for its song, from which derives the common name: a pleasant and rather loud warble which sounds like e-le-PAI-o or ele-PAI-o. It nests between January and June.
