"Extinct since 1914, this regal relative of the familiar mourning dove once animated the skies of the eastern United States with flocks of more than a billion birds. Massive hunting sprees for sport or for food quickly decimated entire populations-the pigeon's penchant for gathering in close flocks making it easy prey to the shotgun. Here we see a scene at dawn, with flocks of pigeons leaving their roosts for a day of feeding among the low rolling hills."
