Visiting #LaReunion allowed for a very special adventure with my 8-month old son. We wanted to see one of the rarest birds in the world before it disappeared: the Reunion Cuckoo-shrike.

This is a thread about #birds, #birding, fatherhood, #biodiversity and #extinction ... 1/13
@Team_eBird @BirdLife_News @BirdWatchingMag @Natures_Voice @WildlifeMag @Britnatureguide @RareBirdAlertUK @extinctsymbol @BirdNoteRadio 2. What does #extinction mean? What does it feel like? How does our species internalise, let alone rationalise, the loss of another?

Perhaps, like the Universe itself, the #anthropocene sixth mass extinction is too big, too abstract, just too *much*, for us to absorb.
@Team_eBird @BirdLife_News @BirdWatchingMag @Natures_Voice @WildlifeMag @Britnatureguide @RareBirdAlertUK @extinctsymbol @BirdNoteRadio 3. So let's focus on just one species: a bird few have heard of, and fewer would likely think or care about. A type of cuckoo-shrike found only on #Reunion, the next-door island to my home in #Madagascar.

A bird from an island where avian extinctions have already occurred.

Hi @OwenJones84 & @paulmasonnews

'We are already facing mass extinction. There is no removing the heat we have introduced into the oceans, nor the 40bn tons of CO2 we pump into the atmosphere every single year. There may be no changing what is happening'
