One of the newly listed birds is the akikiki or Kauai creeper, a small, dark gray and olive honeycreeper in the Alakai Wilderness Preserve that eats insects and spiders.
There are estimated to be fewer than 1,400 'akikiki and fewer than 3,500' akeke'e in 2007.
George Fenwick, president of the bird conservation group, called the listing proposal "an important victory for the 'akikiki and' akeke'e, which need every bit of help that they can get."
The akikiki lives only on the high, wet slopes of Kauai's highest mountain.
The proposal, made on Tuesday by Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne includes 45 plants, two Kauai birds - the 'akikiki and' akeke'e - and one Hawaiian picture-wing fly.
