Bird 1

Photographer:

Sylvain Richer de Forges

Date Taken:

2009-02-01

Location:

Singapore, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve


Description:

Non flying birds have greater chances of becoming extinct than flying ones. Obvious reason being that they cannot escape predators as easy as flying birds. Many non flying birds have become extinct during the colonial era where dogs were introduced to islands. Famous case studies include the Dodo in Mauritius island or the Cagou in New Caledonia.
