Read in February, 2008

Hoose tells the history of the life and (most likely) extinction of the Ivory-billed woodpecker.

Detailed, extensive, well-written and researched YA nonfiction. Included all sorts of topics from plume wars (lady's fashionable additions causing distruction) to the lumber industry, to it's supposed extinction. Hoose makes bird (and even bird watching) interesting. Who knew this could be such an interesting topic?
