Who will dig up our bones?
Will they be put on display?

The Southern Caracara (Caracara plancus), also known as the Southern Crested Caracara, is a bird of prey in the family Falconidae. It formerly included the Northern Caracara (C. cheriway) of southern USA, Central America and northern South America, and the extinct Guadalupe Caracara (C. lutosus) as subspecies. As presently defined, the Southern Caracara is restricted to central and southern South America. As its relatives, it was formerly placed in the genus Polyborus.

Extinct since 1933. I remember writing a small project about these at school when I was about ten and their story has fascinated me ever since. If you're interested, there's more information here: users.aristotle.net/~swarmack/index.html and here www.naturalworlds.org/thylacine/. There's also currently one other Flickr photo at: www.flickr.com/photos/mlhs/538156/
