About The Kauai Elepaio

Chasiempis sclateri is endemic to Kaua`i in the Hawaiian Islands (USA) (VanderWerf et al. 2009). It had an estimated population of nearly 40,000 individuals in 1968-1973, apparently reduced by c. 50% in the 1990s (Jacobi and Atkinson 1995), although this apparent decrease may be due to differences in methodology, rather than a genuine population decrease. The species now appears to be recovering well, with an increase of 13% in the mean density recorded on the Akala`i Plateau and Kôke`e region between 2000 and 2008, resulting in an estimated population size of 28,506 individuals (95% CI: 14,256-36,666) in 2008 (M. Gorresen in litt. 2011).
