Family: Fringillidae (Finches and Hawaiian honeycreepers)
Authority: (Hartert, 1905)
Red List Category
This species has a small population, and a small, fragmented range, and is currently restricted to two locations. However, it is not declining, and although its core population halved in 2008 following a forest fire in 2007, it had recovered to pre-fire levels by 2011, and has continued to increase since then. For these reasons, it is classified as Endangered.
