`Alalā Recovery Plan
Voices of the `Alalā
The vocalizations of the `Alalā, or Hawaiian Crow, include a diverse and eerie assortment of squeals, rattles, growls, and resonant wails, very unlike the caws and croaks of the North American crows and ravens that are familiar to most of us. They are evocative of what a Hawaiian forest could have sounded like at dawn a hundred years ago; and with our care might once again.
