A Unique Species

Far from the earth
 there in the dearth
 there being a species
tall and high in the treatise
something rare in the world
 almost extinct in the world.

These being a variety of bird
 dynamic in the earthen gird
peculiar in habits and post
with looks down cast
moving almost very fast
 taking flight even faster.

The bird is called differently
 hard to spell independently
needing a prompt assuredly
hard to pronounce legitimately
 being a tough variance
calling for a radiance.
