The Thing with Feathers
Per birdman Wolcott, and Julia, too (see her "Headline of the Day" - can't seem to make a more specific link) - very cool. Not dissimilar to the reading of the Oxyrhynchus scrolls through new imaging technology - things thought lost forever are found again. I suspect there are more of these survivals than we know, but also extinctions and losses of which we are ignorant, lost by the casual malice of indifference or greed. And some of which we are not so ignorant - wasn't it Rummy who said, "Stuff happens..."?
Seems we have some feathers - now where's that tar?
