“… species such as the house sparrow, snipe, starling, lapwing and corn bunting have been listed as birds of European concern, but these species have been declining in the United Kingdom’s countryside for decades.” Mark Avery, 2004.
A total of 9934 bird species were assessed for threatened species status by 2004; 1213 species were at risk of global extinction. In Indonesia 121 bird species were at risk of local extinction; in Brazil, 120 species. On average, over 18 bird species were at risk of local extinction per territory. [larger view].
