Quiz Question: Which rare bird was the focus of a large-scale conservation plan in the US?
The given options are:
- Tweety bird
- California condor
- Rufous hummingbird
Info: This strange-looking, historically misunderstood and still-endangered bird is a crucial part of its south-west US habitat. Because California condors eat carrion (dead animals), they accidentally ingest lead and other poisons, which caused a steep population decline. But an extensive US government-sanctioned programme helped the condors rear and nurture a new generation.
