 Birds on the IUCN Red List
The Red List Index for the world’s birds shows that there has been a steady and continuing deterioration in the threat status (relative projected extinction risk) of the world’s birds since 1988, when the first complete global assessment was carried out.
This means that, overall, bird species are continuing to slip closer to extinction, with any conservation successes being outweighed by the number of species deteriorating in status.
Declines have been particularly severe for birds in the Indo-Malayan realm (owing to intensified deforestation in the lowlands of Sumatra and Borneo) and for the world’s albatrosses and petrels (owing to significant mortality as bycatch in commercial longline fisheries).

 CNN.com - Spot feathered friends at Birdzilla - July 12, 2002
Some people keep a list of birds seen in a day, birds seen in their backyard, or even lists of streets that are named after birds.
Once a rare bird is seen, it's important that information is immediately reported and the location information is exact, thus the bird can be seen by other interested bird watchers.
If a rare bird is spotted, then the birder can report the exact coordinates to Birdzilla, which in turn will provide the exact GPS coordinates to those birders who also use e-mail enabled cell phones and PDAs.

 Farmers helping tree sparrow - The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The birds get through a barrel-full of feed in about a month, spread on the farms by RSPB staff and volunteers, co-ordinated by Jon Reeves from the Ouse Washes nature reserve.
As well as tree sparrows, this supplementary feeding aids the survival of other farmland birds such as yellowhammers and corn buntings, ensuring they are in prime condition for breeding in the spring.
It has declined by some 90 per cent in the last 30 years and is therefore on the 'red list' of birds of conservation concern, but there is some evidence of recent recovery of numbers thanks to projects like this one in the Fens.

The UK population was estimated at 52,000 breeding pairs for the 1988-91 Breeding Bird Atlas.
Like many other birds of prey, kestrels were persecuted heavily in the late 19th and early 20th century by gamekeepers, even though they rarely take game bird chicks.
The kestrel is included on the Amber List of Birds of Conservation Concern due to the moderate decline of the UK breeding population and its adverse conservation status Europe-wide.

Although descended from the dinosaurs, birds have evolved remarkable specializations for flight: a unique "one-way" breathing system, light yet strong hollow bones, a skeleton in which many bones are fused or lost, powerful flight muscles, and -- most importantly -- feathers.
