Subject: [MDBirding] OT: New info on Carolina Parakeets
The range of Carolina Parakeets may have been smaller than previously
thought:http://theconversation.com/the-tragic-story-of-americas-only-native-parrot-now-extinct-for-100-years-93038

Apparently there were two subspecies. Based on the map, it looks like
the more northwestern subspecies (/Conuropsis carolinensis ludovicianus)
/was the one seen in Maryland.
