Old Blue: The Rarest Bird in the World
PUBLICATION APRIL 2014
At one time, not so very long ago, there remained only five black robins in the entire world. The story of Old Blue is a remarkable account of survival and conservation that never fails to inspire.
Mary Taylor is a former teacher and has worked as a professional artist since 1983. Her work includes limited edition etchings, paintings, and illustrations for books. As one who cares passionately about the conservation of the natural world, Mary felt that the wonderful story of Old Blue and the survival of the Chatham Islands black robin was one that deserved a wider audience. This moving and beautiful book is the result.
