Adult Lecture: Passenger Pigeons, Heath Hens, and other Missing Creatures: What does it all mean?

Thursday, September 4, 2014 - 7:30pm

Passenger Pigeons once “darkened the skies” in their migrations to mass breeding grounds in the north. Heath Hens were so common that they fed on Boston Common, and they were hunted so extensively that servants tried to bribe their masters into not serving the bird to them for meals; there was only so much Heath Hen a man could eat. Yet these birds and others – the Great Auk, the Eskimo Curlew, etc. – have gone extinct since the commencement of European settlement on North America.
