Abstract: Among the scanty writings on the Hawaiian
crow (Corvus tropicus Gmelin), there is no
detailed record of its nest and eggs or of its
habits associated with the breeding cycle. Berger
(in press) lists and reviews the literature and
reports that the current total population of this
species may be as small as 25 birds. This present
paper describes the final example of use by
crows of a traditional nesting ground on the
lower northeast flank of the Hualalai volcano,
Hawaii County, Hawaii, in 1964. A nest discovered
under construction on March 26 was
observed at intervals of 6 to 9 days, through
April 26, when it failed; a single infertile egg
remained from the original clutch of five and
the crows were then in the process of abandoning
the nest.
