Bird Word: Extinct
Extinct: a species that has died out and is no longer in existence.
Sadly, some bird species have completely died out and no longer exist for our our enjoyment. Not only are we the poorer for this sad state, the environment is the big loser. Extinct Australian birds include:
- Kangaroo Island Emu (this island is off the coast of South Australia)
- King Island Emu (between Tasmania and Victoria)
- Paradise Parrot
