The Heaviest Bird

The great bustard had been extinct in Britain since 1832, when the last one was shot. But according to Wikipedia, "recent attempts to reintroduce it into England have met with some success and there is a population of 40 birds on Salisbury Plain, a British Army training area. Here the lack of public access allows them the freedom needed as a large ground–nesting bird."
