Abstract: Chasiempis sandwichensis is a small, grayish Old World flycatcher (Muscicapidae). Chasiempis sandwichensis sclateri is endemic to the island of Kaua'i. Chasiempis sandwichensis gayi is endemic to the island of O’ahu. Chasiempis sandwichensis sandwichensis is endemic to the island of Hawai’i.

Moho braccatus, or ‘O’o’a’a, is a medium-sized, brownish-black, moderately long-tailed forest bird beloging to the family Meliphagidae and is endemic to Kaua’i. Moho apicalis, or O’ahu ‘O’o, is a large (12-inch long), black, plume-tailed forest bird endemic to O’ahu. Moho bishopi, or Moloka’i ‘O’o, is a large, black, plume-tailed forest bird endemic to Moloka’i. Reports on an unknown species of Moho presumably endemic to Maui are also reviewed. Moho nobilis, or Hawai’I ‘O’o, is endemic to Hawai’i.

Chaetopila angustipluma, or Kioea, also of the family Meliphagidae, became extinct shortly after 1859.

These reports detail the results of exhaustive search of literature and field journals detailing observational notes, collection records, reports, and related statements on relative abundance and geographical distribution. Records are serially numbered, arranged in geographical and chronological order, referenced, and systematically reviewed. Analyses of population trends are discussed.
