A Call for Stories
This epilogue infers from the preceding analysis on avian entanglements with other living things. This analysis works against simplistic human exceptionalisms by giving a broader, more complex notion of what extinction is, as well as why and how it matters. With a better understanding of extinction, one may change his or her perspective from simple entanglements to the ways of life: ways of being with others; of mourning; of relating to a place; of rearing a young; and of making one's home in the world. Accounts on these ways of life have been, by far, in this text, premised on the living experiences of birds and how these experiences are woven into ecosystems of others. The epilogue concludes with a call for a genuine appreciation for other forms of life.
