"The Great Auk swam like a fish, walked like a penguin, and flew like a stone. But he adapted happily to ocean life, prospering from Iceland to Florida, while heading the menu of North Atlantic islanders for three hundred years. Then the professional hunters invaded his nurseries, butchering relentlessly for oil and feathers, encrusting Funk island with discarded carcasses. The last of the Great Auk was clubbed to death in 1844, heading the obituary column of American birds." - Charles Harper
