Martha, The Passenger Pigeon

For years and years, I've visited our Cincinnati Zoo and NEVER ONCE have I stepped inside this wonderful little building to honor sweet, sweet Martha, The LAST Passenger Pigeon!  There is a beautiful memorial set up for her and they've even stuffed her precious, over-worked little birdie body for all to view and pay their respects.

Actually... it completely made me CRACK UP!  I bowed my head in reverence and then laughed aloud at the silliness of the situation.  If you want to read the details, you can click on the below photo to enlarge it for better viewing.
Sweet, Sweet Martha.  You WILL be missed!!!
