Some parrot held a poop in for a long ass time


This about all we have left for good news.


Kind of looks like the Lady Slipper we have in Nova Scotia, it’s endangered but I found a ton in one spot last year.

Sometimes we hear about these species thought to be extinct in really difficult to navigate places and I’m left with the question of how it was originally determined to be extinct? There must be a statistical method of extrapolating that because an exhaustive census of the species seems practically impossible.
