Thought I'd try something a little different from the mammal species poll and move to the EDGE birds. For the first of these polls I thought I'd make it a contest between two of the most iconic and charismatic endangered bird species on the planet: The kakapo and the Californian condor. At first glance there are very few similarities between these two birds as one is a flightless nocturnal parrot found in no zoo whereas the other is a gracefully flying diurnal raptor found in a number of zoos. However, both have been on the knife's edge of extinction and been the subject of intensive conservation efforts that have spanned decades and are classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. Which of these bird species interests you most / will you vote for ? Please also feel free to write comments regarding why you made the choice and why the species you have voted for interests you more. Thanks ! Look forward to seeing the results!
