WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- An extinct bird came home to roost at the North Carolina Museum of Forestry this weekend. A print of James Audubon's "Carolina Parrot" is now on display at the museum in Whiteville. The colorful bird was the only parrot species native to the eastern United States. It was determined extinct in 1939. The new display has special significance to the people who run the museum. "This is just part of the Forestry Museum's rebirth," museum director Harry Warren said.

The "Carolina Parrot" print is now part of the museum's permanent collection.
