Such wonderful news from the London Review of Books. Long article there reminded us that a 17thC shipwreck in Bermuda was the model for Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Disaster for the birds, though — they were not afraid of people, so, like dodoes, they’d gather arond humans’ feet and get clubbed to death and eaten. They were believed extinct, until a few were discovered on a remote island and given support by one, then a growing number of well informed and careful people. The URL above shows the gentle activity of a parent bird taking care of a baby. I can’t embed video but it’s worth a watch.
