Endangered species are any species which is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. This gallery of Endangered Birds covers the Critically Endangared, Endangered and Vulnerable categories.

All of these birds are Endemic Philippine Birds, except for two Migrants – Chinese Egret and Far Eastern Curlew. All of these bird photos were taken in the wild, in their natural habitat, except for two – Philippine Eagle (Philippine Eagle Center) and Negros Bleeding-Heart (Silliman University).
