A list of the ten most endangered birds in the country includes at least 3 birds who call Texas home. These birds are on the brink of extinction (being gone forever from the earth). They are:
The Ivory-billed Woodpecker was also in the Top 10. It was recently "re-discovered" in an Arkansas swamp. The same habitat exists in eastern Texas- a "Cypress swamp" extending hope that it lives here too.
The list of the Top 10 Most Endangered Birds was compiled by the National Audubon Society, which also listed the Common Sage Grouse, California Condor, Kirtland's Warbler, Ashy Stormpetrol, Kittlitz's Murrelet and the Florida Scrub-Jay.
