The Bengal Florican, one of the world’s most threatened bird and is from Cambodia. Since re-discovered in Cambodia in 1999, Bengal Florican numbers have plummeted due to unregulated land conversion for intensive agriculture.
In America, according to the National Audubon Society, the top endangered bird is the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, whose habitat loss is due to clear-cutting of its bottomland forest habitat for agriculture and forest products. It had not been seen in the United States since 1944 or in cuba since 1987, the species was believed to be extinct. In 2004, in Arkansas, there was a sighting of the ivory-bill.
The most endangered bird is the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. The Ivory-Billed Woodpecker once inhabit the southeastern part of the United States but was considered extinct when there were no where to be found for decades. It was not until 2004 was the bird spotted in Arkansas. Only one single woodpecker was spotted.
The second most endangered bird is the California Condor. This bird became extinct in the wild since 1987. The last six known condors were captured in 1987 and where placed in a recovery program. The condor now only exists in places where it has been reintroduced. They were reintroduced in rangelands, coniferous forests, oak savanna, and the rocky scrubland of southern and baja California and Arizona.
The third most endangered bird is the Whooping Crane. These birds once inhabited prairies of United States, Canada, highlands of northern Mexico, the Texas Gulf Coast, and parts of the Atlantic coast. During the late 1800s their population began to decline rapidly and by 1941, there were only about twenty cranes left in the wild. Captive breeding has helped the population grow. Now there are approximately 340 cranes in the wild and 135 in captivity.
