Re: Favorite Extinct Bird

As a fine Carolina girl (who went to NC State instead of that, um, place in Chapel Hill)...I must choose the lovely CarConuropsis carolinensis.

I love my girls.

Re: Favorite Extinct Bird

No moa
No moa
In old Ao-tea-roa
Can’t get ‘em
They’ve eat ‘em
They’re gone and there ain’t no moa.
