The story of the Passenger Pigeon is unlike that of any other bird. With a population estimated to be 3 to 5 billion, it was the most abundant bird in North America and perhaps the world. Yet human exploitation drove this species to extinction in just a few decades. 2014 marks the centenary of this extraordinary extinction.

Passenger Pigeons Garrie Landry has had a lifelong interest in the Passenger Pigeon and maintains a website dedicated to the Passenger Pigeon. He became an authority on the species and its extinction. [More]
