Description
Forty years ago researchers discovered a previously unknown species of bird in the remote mountains of Hawaii. As they studied the creature—which was named the po'ouli, meaning "black-faced"—researchers learned that its population was shrinking rapidly, and they worked to prevent its extinction. Alvin Powell's fast-paced account of their efforts features a worldwide cast of scientists, birders, zookeepers, and conservationists, endeavoring to save an elusive bird that may no longer exist today.
