An ʻakekeʻe (Hawaiian honeycreeper) perches on a green branch. ʻAkekeʻe is one of several forest birds native to Hawaiʻi that are endangered of extinction. Avian malaria, a disease transmitted by invasive mosquitoes, is driving their extinction – for some species a single bite by an infected mosquito can kill.
