List of the Extinct Birds

1. Dodo Bird

The Dodo bird was a flightless bird that lived in the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. There, the Dodo bird inhabited and nested on the ground as it had already lost its need and ability for flight.

  • By evolution, the dodo birds did not have any natural predators (of course, except humans!)
  • The start of the 1500s marked the arrival of humans to the island. Dodo birds have since then been widely hunted for fresh meat, thus reducing their large number.

5. Arabian Ostrich

The next extinct bird in the list is the Arabian ostrich which is also known as the “Camel bird.” This bird inhabited the regions of the Middle East several million years ago.

  • In the Middle East, this bird was widely hunted for its feathers, skin, and eggs. In addition, the large size of these birds makes them ideal as a dinner choice, along with other animals like camels and zebras.
  • During the early 20th century, the population of the Arabian ostrich was greatly reduced as a byproduct of World War II. Finally, the last Arabian ostrich recorded was found in Bahrain in 1941.
