Bengal Florican

Houbaropsis bengalensis (Gmelin, JF, 1789)

The Bengal Florican (Houbaropsis bengalensis), also called Bengal Bustard, is a very rare bustard species from the Indian Subcontinent, with a smaller separate population in Southeast Asia. It is the only member of the genus Houbaropsis. This threatened species is now almost extinct; probably fewer than 1,000 and perhaps as few as 500 adult birds are still alive. Source: Wikipedia
