Nightingale Reed-Warbler

Acrocephalus luscinius (Quoy & Gaimard, 1830)

The Nightingale Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus luscinius) is a presumed extinct songbird from the island of Guam. The Chamorro name for the bird is Ga`ga` Karisu (bird of the reeds). It existed until the late 1960s. An alien species, the brown tree snake is primarily blamed for its demise on the island. Source: Wikipedia
