Endangered Birds of India

Indian subcontinent is home to a large number of birds and also witnesses the influx of numerous migratory birds. However, since a couple of years, some of these birds are facing an immense threat of extinction. One of the major reasons for Indian birds being endangered is the loss of their habitat, because of deforestation and other human activities.
