Two of the birds unique to Guam now survive only as a result of captive breeding: the Guam Rail (Smithsonian National Zoo) and the Guam Kingfisher Todiramphus cinnamominus cinnamominus (Lincoln Park Zoo), a subspecies of the Micronesian Kingfisher. Four additional endemic birds are recently extinct: the Guam Broadbill Myiagra freycineti (fws.gov), the Guam Reed Warbler Acrocephalus luscinius (Wikimedia Commons), a subspecies of the Rufous Fantail Rhipidura rufifrons uraniae (guamdawr.org), and the Guam Bridled White-eye Zosterops conspicillatus conspicillatus (fws.gov), a subspecies of the Bridled White-eye which has a second subspecies that survives in the Northern Mariana Islands.
Flying Fox (Andrew Isles) (IUCN
Red List) is also extinct.
