Lynn Neary talks with Michael Buck, administrator of the State of Hawaii Division of Forestry and Wildlife, about plans to capture the last three po'ouli birds known to exist. The birds' capture is part of an effort to save the species from extinction. The birds live within 1.5 miles of one another in a rainforest on Maui, but are believed to have never encountered one another.
