The Laysan honeycreeper or Laysan ʻapapane (Himatione fraithii) is an extinct bird species that was endemic to the island of Laysan in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Domestic rabbits were introduced to the island in the late 19th century, and quickly consumed nearly all vegetation on the island, including nectar sources for the Laysan honeycreeper. The bird was filmed in 1923 during the Tanager Expedition. Shortly after, Laysan was battered by a strong storm, and later attempts at finding any remaining Laysan honeycreeper failed. Other birds also inhabited the island, including the Laysan millerbird, the Laysan rail, the Laysan duck, and the Laysan finch. Of these, only the finch and the duck remain extant. Order: Passeriformes, Family: Fringillidae, Subfamily: Carduelinae, Species: Himatione fraithii Rothschild, 1892
