According to the Audubon society the most endangered bird species (as of 2006) is the Ivory Billed Woodpecker. It was thought to be extinct until one was found in the woods of Arkansas in 2004.
The Ivory Billed Woodpecker may well be extinct by now, sadly. Really, this is a perfect example of how difficult it can be to tell whether a species is still alive in the wild or not. Another bird worth considering for the “most endangered” list is the California Condor. Though they are a success story in that captive breeding programs have helped the species recover despite going extinct in the wild in 1987, there are now 270 total, a little more than half of which are in captivity. The species still has a long way to go.
