So many beautiful animals are endangered now as habitats are destroyed for construction purposes. The Florida Panther, our state animal, is facing the same challenge. At one time there were thought to be only 20 surviving panthers. They brought in some cats from the West with a near genetic match and are trying to restore the species. But it will never be the same. Such a moving poem. Love you, Carolyn

A lot of species are in similar situations at the moment. Your haiku describes the spotted owl and his habitat quite well.
