In his April 17 ornithology column in the MaineToday newspapers, Arey Professor of Biosciences Herb Wilson wrote about the Bien edition of Audubon’s Birds of North America that is currently on view in the Colby Special Collections library. Apropos of the coming Earth Day, Wilson provides a eulogy for the extinct Carolina parakeet, which is pictured in the spectacular reprinting of John James Audubon’s aquatint renderings of birds.
