rare and declining bird species of the world and their conservation
(Ph.: Wikim. Commons -- Leandro Prudencio)
Go to this BirdLife International page to learn about current happenings in international bird conservation and an array of rare or declining bird species. One of my favorites (the Gouldian Finch) is pictured here. This species, while popular with aviculturists and cage bird fanciers, is threatened in the wild, in its home country of Australia.
