Palila (Loxioides bailleui) fledgling fed by Hawai'i 'Amakihi (Hemignathus virens)

January 1, 2008

We observed an adult male Hawai'i 'Amakihi (Hemignathus virens) repeatedly feed a fledgling Palila (Loxioides bailleui). We observed 16-19 food provisions during 14 hrs of observation between 21 and 29 June 2006. The presumed biological parents were frequently seen nearby, but adult Palila were not observed feeding the fledgling.
