INTERESTING FACTS

The Hawaiian Crow is now extinct in the wild. Prior to this, the species was only found on the island of Hawaii in open park-like montane forest.
While some birds remain in captive breeding facilities, the small number of living individuals may mean that the gene pool has been reduced to the point that the species can no longer recover.
Fossil remains indicate that it previously occurred in relative abundance on all the main islands, along with two other extinct crow species.
A group of crows has many collective nouns, including a "cauldron", "congress", "horde", "murder", and "muster" of crows.

The Hawaiian Crow has no natural range, confined now to only captive breeding facilities. Endemic to the island of Hawaii but regionally extinct, this bird prefers forest and shrubland ecosystems. The global population of this bird is estimated at only a small handful of individuals and has shown such significant decline that is has reached near top-tier status on the IUCN Red List. The current evaluation status of the Hawaiian Crow is Extinct in the Wild.
