The black-throated finch has been voted “bird of the year” in Australia for 2019, helping draw attention to the species’ decline as human activities increasingly threaten its habitat. The finch’s victory was reportedly driven by support from conservationists, who connected its plight to deforestation and bushfires in Australia, as well as opposition to a planned coal mine. #finch #bird #birds #blackthroatedfinch #australia #birdoftheyear #photography #animals #conservation
