Dedicated To Martha

I drove into my downtown Nati City to show you something special.
Parking is easy in my new Tub Car.

Martha, lived out her last days at the Cincinnati Zoo.
Martha was the last passenger pigeon on Earth.
Extinct gone forever, what was once the most numerous bird species in America.
 Martha died in 1914.
6,500 square feet on a side of a downtown building we have a mural.
ArtWorks reproduced an original John A. Ruthven.  A masterpiece.
It took 103 days to be completed.  Look at the size of the passenger pigeon's wing compared to me in the center bottom of the picture.
The mural is dedicated to Martha and Passenger Pigeons.
How I, Sweet William The Scot, wish I could have seen Martha and her flocks fly.
Lets all work together to not let another species go extinct.
Here in this two minute video you can watch the mural being painted.
Hit the YouTube if you want full screen.

Well now I got to pick up my girl friend Bella for the dance over at Christmas' Blog.
Hope Bella likes my stylish Tub Car.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine

  7. I swear it wuzn't me dat ate em all.

  8. it is always so sad to loose an entire species - you just never know what we could of learned from them

  9. Thank you so much Sweet William for showing us that truly awesome mural. Gail has read about passenger pigeons and their sad fate at the hands of her species. We join you in hoping for no more pointless and destructive extinctions. (As scientists we do understand that 'natural' extinctions are part of evolution).
