    One thought on “The Silent Sky: The Incredible Extinction of the Passenger Pigeon”

    1. I teased on Facebook about Passenger Pigeon Romance and Sex Now you ll have to find a copy of this book to read those heart racing pages and the heart touching story of a Passenger Pigeon from hatching thru the end of his days and of his only surviving squab thru the end of her days.Does the name Martha ring a bell Unbelievable that these billions of birds were hunted and made extinct.Compelling tribute to a species destroyed.

    2. It disturbs me that at the time of Audubon there was literally BILLIONS of passenger pigeons in the United States and then 100 years later, there were none This story mesmerized and convicted me It nailed home the point that our actions affect the world around us Sometimes irreversibly so.I will never forget this story.

    3. Solid Good for youngsters, I think, and better than I expected it to be I can tell it s written almost directly from A.W Schorger s natural history, but the novelization works The end made me sad, so there s also that.Note that Martha s origin isn t quite accurately portrayed she was transferred from another zoo, did not spend whole life in Cincinnati.

    4. What an incredibly emotional read This small book should be mandatory reading Written in novel form, a powerful account of the extinction of an entire species of birds in a very short period of time From over three billion to zero.

    5. A sad and poignant book on the extinction of the passenger pigeon Fascinating Oh what damage mankind has done to his home planet and fellow creatures
