Movements and Migration
Kaua‘i ‘Ö‘ö. No information, but probably had no reason to migrate, except for altitudinal movement in response to severe weather or availability of food.
Oah‘u ‘Ö‘ö. No information; probably local movement in response to weather or food availability.
Bishop's ‘Ö‘ö. R. C. L. Perkins commented in his field journal, on the basis of his 1893 experience, that it “changed its haunts at different seasons” (Banko 1981b). This behavior might be interpreted as local movement in response to weather or food resource availability.
Kioea. No information. On the basis of comment by Peale (Peale 1848: 148) that “they are generally found about those trees which are in flower,” we may conclude that this species made local movements in search of flowering food resources and perhaps altitudinal movements in response to severe weather.
