Leucopsar rothschildi

 Unknown to science until 1912, this starling was first bred in captivity in 1928. Zoos in the U.S. (including Tulsa) have hatched more than 2,000 since 1962. In 1999, the wild population fell to only twelve individuals due to the illegal pet trade, but captive breeding has prevented its extinction.
