So much destruction because people wanted to get rich selling sugar.

I want those little yellow leg feathers! I need to make a cape out of them! Then I'll become the King of Hawaii!
Binro the Heretic
The natives would carefully catch the birds, pluck a few of those little feathers and release the bird unharmed.

Tens of thousands of feathers would be collected to decorate a single chief's helmet or cape.

Vaguely reminds me of a hermit thrush as filtered through some alien synth jungle.

So sad. :(

Sad, but the extinction of the O'o and it's relatives was less a man-caused thing and more a combination of environmental factors on Kauai, including hurricanes destroying large amounts of their livable range, infections from insects carrying diseases, and problems with tree-killing diseases.
I'm sure man didn't *help* the issue, but their relative birds were extinct before that was even a thing.

This video becomes much less sad if you translate the O'o's song into human:

Hey bay-BEE! Hey bay-BEE!

Caminante Nocturno
I wonder what they tasted like.

We'll never know.
