Critically Endangered Birds of India


Did you know that 15 of the 1300+ bird species found in India are critically endangered? And among these, two are already presumed extinct? Here is a map that shows you where these fifteen occur or have been spotted in the past- the Spoon-billed Sandpiper, the Great Indian Bustard, the White-bellied Heron, the Pink-headed Duck, the Baer's Pochard, the Jerdon's Courser, the Forest Owlet, the Sociable Lapwing; the White-backed, Red-headed, Long-billed and Slender-billed Vultures; the Bugun Liocichla, the Bengal Florican and the Himalayan Quail. If you're an ornithologist on a re-discovery mission, my best wishes to you for finding the Pink-headed Duck and the Himalayan Quail!

I have only been able to spot 7 of these 15 species so far. How about you?
