The Birds of the Hawaiian Islands:
Occurrence, History, Distribution, and Status
Version 2 - 1 January 2017

 Robert L. Pyle and Peter Pyle

 

Primary Checklist

The following checklist includes 338 bird species documented as occurring in the Hawaiian Islands either naturally or through introduction and establishment of a viable breeding population for at least 15 years. Taxonomy follows that of the American Ornithologists Union Checklist (1998) and supplements through 2016 (AOU 1999-2016) while species order follows that of the supplements through AOU (2015). See Introduction for more information on acceptance criteria to the Primary Checklist. See the Hypothetical List for species reported in the Hawaiian Islands but not accepted to the Primary Checklist, and the Non-established List for non-native species reported in the wild that have not established viable breeding populations. Status codes are provided for the Hawaiian Islands as a whole as well as each Northwestern and Southeastern Hawaiian Island or island groups separately; status codes for each island within these groups are obtained by clicking on the code for the island group. Detailed species accounts and documentary (HRBP) photographs are accessed by clicking on the 'pdf' and 'photos' links, respectively. Status codes are as follows (see Introduction for more details):

R - Resident (Endemic or Indigenous; see acount for status)
N - Naturalized (non-native) resident (established and breeding)
n - Naturalized (non-native) visitor (from another island or island group)
B - Breeding Visitor (occurs seasonally and breeds)
M - Migrant through the islands (some may winter) or non-breeding visitor (often seabirds)
W - Winter Visitor (some may migrate through the islands or breed occasionally)
V - Vagrant (visitor that does not occur regularly)
X - Extinct or almost cerrtainly Extinct
x - Extirpated from that island or island group (Resident or Naturalized populations)

Click on NWHI and SEHI for island-specific lists for the Northwestern and Southeastern Hawaiian Islands, respectively. Click on pdf for a detailed account of the species, and on photos for documentary images in the Hawaii Rare Bird Photograph (HRBP) Collection, if available.
