Description

In the early 19th century, the most abundant bird in North America, and perhaps the entire world, was the passenger pigeon. An estimated three billion of them would fly in flocks so large that they could blot out the sun. 

However, within a century, the entire species had gone extinct. 

It was one of the fastest and most disastrous turnarounds for any species in recorded history.

Learn more about the passenger pigeon and how they went extinct on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
