Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction.

This presentation looks at three birds, each representing a different
outcome at the hands of people. With a population in the billions, the
passenger pigeon was the most abundant bird in North America. Yet within a
matter of decades, unrelenting human exploitation drove it to extinction.
The Kirtland's warbler has since historical times bred in a very limited
range and within narrow habitat parameters. The whooping crane declined to
23 living individuals twice. Learn more about these species and what can be
done to save them at this exciting lecture. For more information, visit our
