1 April 2015 – 2 Carbonated Swamp-Warblers!

For the first time since Audubon collected two individuals in Kentucky in May 1811, the existence of his so-called Carbonated Swamp-Warbler has been confirmed!  Sadly, the last remaining Carbonated Swamp-Warblers struck a window and were stunned this morning, but before I could rescue them a neighborhood cat grabbed them and rendered this species extinct once again.  I was only able to make the following crude sketch before they were gone.
