Type in the most endangered birds you’ve seen as of August 2021.
All are near-threatened (except for the common ones)
Alexandrine parakeet (Psittacula eupatria):
Habitat loss and bird trade/poaching
Malabar Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros coronatus):
Habitat degradation, urbanization, forest fires and habitat fragmentation
Painted Stork (Mycteria leucocephala):
Drainage and pollution, destruction of nesting sites and habitat, hunting of eggs and chicks, and hybridization with invasive storks
Woolly-necked Stork (Ciconia episcopus):
Drainage and pollution, destruction of nesting sites and habitat, hunting of eggs and chicks
Black-Tailed Godwit (Limosa limosa):
Urbanization, hunting and trapping, fire and water management, agriculture, transportation accidents/borders, intrusion, non/native species, climate change
It has practically every problem a bird can have, and considering it has one of the biggest ranges of any seabird, this makes it top on my list.
In my country, only some rare restricted endemics are any more than vulnerable.
