Yellow-breasted Bunting

Emberiza aureola
Conservation status: Critical
Size: 15 cm
In the past, the yellow-breasted bunting was known as the passenger pigeon of Asia and numbered in the many millions. In Scandinavia, Russia and Asia, it resided in paddy fields. However, its proclivity for friendliness made it prone to the dangers of hunting. Today, there has been a 90% decline in its population and the yellow-breasted bunting is critically endangered in many countries.
