Bird Nerd: Episode #3

Guam Kingfisher

The Guam kingfisher was once found throughout the island of Guam in the Mariana Islands.  Along with most of Guam’s endemic birds, the Guam Micronesian kingfisher declined dramatically in the 1970s and 1980s as a result of predation by the introduced brown tree snake.


To save Guam’s endemic bird species from certain extinction, the Philadelphia Zoo partnered with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to form the Guam Bird Rescue Project. Find out about this recovery effort and more in episode #3!
