The Last Passenger Pigeon

The Last Passenger Pigeon 8X2813
"This September marks a melancholy anniversary: the first of the month is the centennial of the death of Martha the pigeon in Cincinnati zoo and, with her passing, the extinction of the passenger pigeon. It was an extinction that 100 years earlier would have been inconceivable." - Adrian Barnett, Beautiful but doomed: Demise of the passenger pigeon, the New Scientist, September 2, 2014
