Video of the extinct heath hen
There’s a good chance I can say this is the first video of the heath hen on Instagram.
This morning the Boston Globe posted a newly discovered video of the heath hen. The last heath hen died on #MarthasVineyard in 1932. Manuel F. Correllus State Forest was created in 1908 as the “Heath Hen Reserve,” in an attempt to prevent the bird’s extinction.
I was successfully able to record the video off of the website and convert it to Instagram. I would’ve loved to post this on the newspaper’s new Instagram account (follow @vineyardgazette), but I wasn’t sure if the video had fallin into public domain or not. This was just an experiment.
