A good icterid is a dead icterid

A review of "An extinct icterid from Shelter Cave, New Mexico" 

A good icterid is a dead icterid. Come on, deep inside all American bird-watchers want the Brown-headed Cowbirds to fossilize stat. Not to mention those incredibly boring meadowlarks. (They aren't larks anyway.)

It's a good thing that A.H. Miller has written this little book on an extinct New World "Blackbird" from the Shelter Cave, NM. I just hope we will see more titles of this kind in the future.

A whole series, actually.

Perhaps this pamphlet will make it easier for the European Blackbird lobby in Washington?
