Extinction in species is not a new thing. Thousands maybe millions of them have happened in Earth’s history. Even so, it’s happening more commonly during recent years.  But how does it affect us? Well, one thing is that bugs would become more common, and organisms that would feed on birds might have a harder time finding food. And bugs would affect plants more from eating grass, making it harder for other organisms to hide from predators.

Now the question is, which birds are the closest to going extinct in the wild? The following three birds are ones that I picked out of a long list.

Cryptic Treehunter
The Cryptic Treehunter is from Brazil what was discovered in 2014 and is often confused for other species of birds. It was estimated to have at least one or two pairs in the Bird Life International Brazil Programme reserve and remained low. The tail takes up about a third of its body size, being 22 cm long and weighing at 48 g.

Po’ouli
Po’ouli, also known as the Black-Faced Honeycreeper is from Maui, one of the Hawaiian islands and are listed as either critically endangered or possibly extinct. They were discovered in 1998 and the one in captivity died in 2004 while the other two have not been seen. The cause for their possible extinction would be deforestation and mosquitoes carrying diseases.

Spix Macaw
The bright blue bird in the movie Rio was based on a real, critically endangered bird called the Spix Macaw. This bird is native to Brazil. It is now extinct in the wild and the remaining birds are kept in captivity. There is most likely under 100 of them left in the world.
