hi all
according to a report on the guardian's website, two birds - the hawaiian 
thrush and hawaiian crow - were among five animals classified as extinct when 
the 2004 red list was released at the world conservation union (IUCN) congress 
in bangkok today.
these may have already been classified as extinct by other (birding) bodies.
no IUCN or other press releases have been posted as yet. i'll send a link when 
they do.

in the meantime, go to:,3604,1353129,00.html

sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings.
