The passenger pigeon was a beautiful, multicolored bird that numbered in the billions in North America during the 19th century. These swift-flying birds were thought to be the most plentiful in the world. But, astonishingly, passenger pigeons were hunted into extinction by the early 20th century. This book is one in a colorful & exciting series that presents vivid details about animals that young readers may never have heard about before. It is a fascinating factual portrait, beautifully illustrated, of basic facts about the passenger pigeon, a once-vital being that, unfortunately, no longer survives.
