Given the choice, which North American bird species would you want to bring back if you could? You can only pick one.
Thanks! Interested to hear what everyone’s favorite is. I predict it will be IBWO, closely followed by PAPI, maybe with CAPA or GRAU coming in third place.[poll type=multiple results=always min=1 max=2 public=true chartType=bar]
Heath Hen (subspecies)
Dusky Seaside Sparrow (subspecies)
EDIT: I put the poll in the comment below because this would not cooperate.
Toss-up between the auk and parakeet. The ivory-billed woodpecker, passenger pigeon, and Eskimo curlew don’t have enough habitat left and would just go extinct again or be zoo curiosities. And the sparrow and warbler are just kind of boring tbh, there’s too many of them already.
