Guam Rail

Hypotaenidia owstoni 

Population: about 150

Status: Extinct in the Wild

The last individual in the wild of this flightless but fast-running bird died in 1987, killed by the brown tree snake. Captive breeding programs in Guam and the U.S. may restore the population. Pictured is a Guam Rail at the Cincinnati Zoo.
