The Paroquet

Record #:
Slightly larger than a blue jay and containing a bigger wingspan, the paroquet of North Carolina vanished in 1909. First reported along the coast in 1586, by Thomas Hariott, the paroquet is a member of the parrot family. Living in large groups partial to orchards, paroquets fell to extinction as a result of destructive habits associated with human beings.
