Unforgettable Flock

By Nathan Myhrvold
Limited Edition

In the early 1800s, the skies above the Great Plains would occasionally go dark at midday, blackened by enormous flocks of migrating passenger pigeons. John James Audubon wrote of one migration he witnessed that “the light of noon-day was obscured as by an eclipse.” Unfortunately, by 1910, passenger pigeons were gone, driven to extinction by hunting and habitat destruction. Nathan often wondered what it must have been like to witness a giant flock of passenger pigeons, and he got a brief sense of that in the spring of 2021 on a visit to the Platte River in Nebraska where he encountered an awe-inspiring flock of migrating snow geese.
