Extinct Birds of the World
The first name that comes to mind when we talk about this topic, is the dodo. It was a large, flightless bird, which was found in abundance in Madagascar, before over-hunting and disruption of habitat wiped it off. The islands off the coast of Madagascar also had some unique birds to its credit. Of the 28 species that were known to exist on these islands, only 4 or 5 remain today.
