Rara avis

I hear that when Arrakis was being colonized, the colonizers brought with them a wide array of North American songbirds. Most of those thrived, but one particular blue bird never did very well, and quickly became endangered.

Which is how we get the old saying “What is so rare as a jay in Dune?”
