A Love Song To An Empty World

Kauaʻi ʻōʻō
American Bird Conservancy (1987)
The Kauaʻi ʻōʻō bird was native to Hawaii.  In 1987, photographer David Boynton recorded the song of the last of its species.  It was a male bird whose mating song went unheard, as there were no remaining female birds of the species left on earth.
