Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 26

Ten endangered birds:

  1. Bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)
  2. Scarlet macaw (Ara macao)
  3. California condor (Gymnogyps californianus)
  4. Masked bobwhite (Colinus virginianus)
  5. Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus)
  6. Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus)
  7. Jackass penguin (Spheniscus demersus)
  8. Kea (Nestor notabilis)
  9. Spotted owl (Strix occidentalis)
  10. Swamp Parakeet (Pezoporus wallicus)

This list was inspired by raebird, who wanted to see the kea, a.k.a. the alpine parrot, appear in a list. Full disclosure: in addition to the kea, one of other the birds in this list was not selected randomly. Guess which one.
