Martha became the celebrity exhibit in its Birds of the World Hall -- until recently, that is. She has now been placed, as museum people say, "in a non-public area." Maybe Martha needs a good cleaning, or perhaps current political ideology would rather not remind us of the Passenger Pigeon."I remember hearing a Radio 4 programme about the passenger pigeon - it was fascinating.

Big Sister"Where's the pigeon?""Slowly the passenger pigeons increased, then suddenly their numbersBecame enormous, they would flatten ten miles of forestWhen they flew down to roost, and the cloud of their risingEclipsed the dawns.
