A Feathered River Across the Sky
The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to ExtinctionBook - 2014
Naturalist Joel Greenberg relates how the pigeons' propensity to nest, roost, and fly together in vast numbers made them vulnerable to unremitting market and recreational hunting. His cautionary tale provides a close look at what happens when species and natural resources are not harvested sustainably.
