Once the most populous bird in North America they were hunted and wasted by the millions, shot and used to fill potholes there were so many. They would fly in huge groups up to 300 miles long, enough to darken the sky as they passed overhead. In St. Louis on man brought down 15 birds with one shot.
When we think there is enough of anything it will last forever remember the Passenger Pigeon.
