In the early nineteenth century 25 to 40 percent of North America’s birds were passenger pigeons, traveling in flocks so massive as to block out the sun for hours. By 1914, the species was extinct.
Naturalist Joel Greenberg will give a presentation at Yale's Kroon Hall, based on his new book about the rapid extinction of the passenger pigeon, and what happens when civilization clashes with nature without taking into concern the results.

Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service
