I recall being spurred to read about Passenger Pigeons after finding the quiz question “who was Martha, who died in Cincinnati Zoo in 1914?”
It is stunning: the numbers involved, and the almost-fanatical extermination campaigns (cf. the American bison). One pictures the hunters involved in a future life: reincarnated as a statue, in a world where Passenger Pigeons are most definitely NOT extinct.
