I´iwi (Vestiaria coccinea)

The I´iwi is a “hummingbird-niched” species of Hawaiian honeycreeper and the only member of the genus Vestiaria. It is one of the most plentiful species of this family, many of which are endangered or extinct. The ʻiʻiwi is the third most common native land bird in the Hawaiian Islands. The bird can hover, much like a hummingbird. The long bill of the ʻiʻiwi assists it to extract nectar from the flowers of the Hawaiian lobelioids, which have decurved corollas. The also eat small arthropods. These birds are altitudinal migrants; they follow the progress of flowers as they develop at increasing altitudes throughout the year. The I´iwi is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN.

Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens), male

A common winter bird in the U.S, “the downy” can be found from Florida to Alaska year-round, at backyard bird feeders and in trees.  Look for a small black and white bird, with a patch on the back of the head for males, or listen for them living up to their names!
