I never knew America had a native parrot at one time! How sad that this gorgeous parrot is now extinct. What I found interesting is that this article states that some scientists consider the Carolina parakeet one of the top candidates for “de-extinction.” Yup. It may be possible to bring it back. And I bet you only thought that could happen to dinosaurs! lol
The last Carolina parakeet died in a zoo a century ago. A scientist tries to unravel some of this bird's lasting mysteries.
