[wisb] Re: Extirpation

Hi all, 
For anyone else interested in this, the other two mammals are Wolverine and 
Elk. 
The 7 bird species are: Carolina Parakeet 
Passenger Pigeon 
American Swallow-tailed Kite 
American Peregrine Falcon 
Whooping Crane 
Long-billed Curlew 
Bewick's Wren 
I don't remember the story of how they left, but Mississippi Kite should 
technically be on the list as well since their range once extended this far 
north. 
All this is per the WI DNR website:

"The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first 
material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the 
composer; but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no 
more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be 
again."

(From William Beebe's "The Bird: Its Form and Function," 1906)
