It was once thought to be a white Dodo, but nowadays it is classified as an ibis.... More > This book tells the story and fate of this bird, and relates the scientific studies trying to identify it. Le Solitaire de l’île de La Réunion entrait dans l’Histoire le 23 mars 1613, sous la plume de l’officier anglais Tatton, qui le décrivait comme une "grosse espèce de volaille blanche".
