Correction: The red-legged honeycreeper pictured on the Spring/Summer 2013 cover is native to parts of the Caribbean and Central and South America; it is incorrectly included as a Hawai’ian native species. For images of Hawai’ian native honeycreepers, see Spring/Summer 2013 “Islands in the Balance.”
