Liberation Celebration

Anthus antarcticus, the South
              Georgia pipit
Anthus Antarcticus, the South Georgia pipit
 (The island of South Georgia, home to unique
  species of pipit and pintail, has finally been
  declared clear of rats and mice after 250 years
  following a decade-long eradication campaign.)
Down in South Georgia
Bait-dropping choppers fought
Alien pests.
Good news for denizens,
Rodent-free habitat
Ends threat to nests.
