Artist's notes:

flightless and semi-flightless birds illustrations galleryOk, so some of the birds here aren't truly "flightless." But I have to put them into a category somewhere, so some semi-flightless birds might have to suffer the indignity of being here until I work up enough drawings to give them their own categories. I have plans to draw a few more soon, such as the Cassowary, but with so many different animals to draw its pretty slow going. I only realized a few weeks ago that penguins are flightless birds (the five different species I've drawn have now been added to this image gallery. If you have a request or have a specific flightless bird (or can suggest a better way to categorize these birds) I'd like to hear from you. Send me an email.

Information about Flightless Birds:

Flightless birds are birds that have, through evolution, lost the ability of flight. They either swim or run to get around. There are about forty truly flightless birds alive today, and these include penguins, the ostrich, kiwis, some rails, cassowaries, rheas, and emus. The islands of New Zealand have more flightless birds than anywhere else, and this is thought to be brought about by the unique species of wildlife that evolved on the island - the birds lost the ability to fly perhaps because there were no ground predators to hunt them. Another good examples if the flightless cormorant of the Galapagos Islands. The most famous extinct flightless bird is the Dodo, which lived on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is believed to have died out in the 17th century, due to predation and deforestation caused by humans and the introduction of non-native species to the island such as pigs, dogs, cats and rats. It has become a symbol of the fragility of isolated wildlife and how quickly and easily species can go extinct.
