Bebrornis rodericanus (Newton, 1865)
It is found only on the island of Rodrigues (which belongs to Mauritius) and used to be plentiful there. Their population soon got smaller. Cyclone Monique in 1968 almost wiped out the entire species. Then a cyclone in 1979 reduced the population even more. The main threats to these birds is the destruction of vegetation for fuel or grazing, rats, and cyclones (natural disasters).
It is threatened by habitat loss.
