The haunting mating call of the last Kauai 'O'o bird

The Kaua'i O'o was a small Hawaiian forest bird. Sadly, the O'o's song was heard for the last time in 1987. Habitat destruction, introduction of non-native species, and slaughter of native species took a drastic toll on the animal and plant life of Hawaii. This sound is the mating call of the final Kauai ‘O’o bird, calling for a mate that would never come.
