2004: A male Po'ouli (black-faced honeycreeper) dies of avian malaria in the Maui Bird Conservation Center in Olinda, Hawaii, before it could breed, making the species in all probability extinct. The bird remains listed as "critically endangered" by BirdLife International and the International Union for Conservation of Nature until additional surveys can confirm its extinction.
