Recently Lost, Quietly Remembered
There are not a lot of sources for the Carolina parakeet. This is perplexing and a little sad given that the Carolina parakeet was determined to be extinct less than a century ago. It is also alarming that an animal as beautiful as the Carolina parakeet could be both the only parrot and a beautiful bird of North America and be largely unknown less than a century later. Extinct animal websites have not forgotten Conuropsis as we can rely on websites like About to bring us facts that are easily readable by most readers online. A slightly higher reading level can be found on the site ExtinctAnimals. The site New Dinosaurs sits comfortably between the two in terms of reading ability and adds in a significant number of illustrations of the bird from a diverse group of artists.
