hello everyone,

you probably know that today is a most inauspicious day: it is the
centenary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon, which was likely the
most numerous single bird species on the planet. this extinction was due
entirely to humans.

i wrote a review of joel greenberg's new book, A feathered river across the
sky, that you may wish to read. my book review is the opening salvo in a
series of opinion pieces and book reviews that i plan to publish this week
about the passenger pigeon. although this is a book review, i think it
reads like a stand alone essay because it provides the context that i will
build upon this week, and deserves some attention.
