Carolina Parakeet

Carolina Parakeet

from Spectral Spirits

Before I read “Passings” by Holly J. Hughes, I had no knowledge of a parakeet who was indigenous to North America; a parakeet who endured winters here! These beautiful birds of yellow, green and orange were the only parrot species native to the eastern United States. They also, like many species, were driven to extinction by humans.
