Vandringsduva - Passenger pigeon

(Ectopistes mighratorius) 

 

Under min semester besökte jag Naturhistoriska Riksmuseeet i Stockholm. Jag tog chansen och fotograferade en del djur man inte ser annars.

 

During my vacation I visited the Swedish Museum of Natutural History. I took the opportunity to photograph some animal you can't see otherwise.

 

När européerna kom till Nordamerika beräknades att det fanns drygt 3 miljarden vandringsduvor. En flock över södra Ontario, Kanada 1866 var 480 km lång och det tog 14 timmar för den att passera. Tyvärr började man jag duvorna skoningslöst och den sista bekräftade observatonen av ev vild vandringsduva var 22 mars 1900. Den 1 september 1914 dog den sista vandringsduvan, Martha, på Cincinnati Zoo Cincinnati, Ohio.

 

When the Europeans came to North-america it's estimated the there were above 3 billion Passenger pigeons. One great flock over southern Ontario, Canada 1866 were 480 km long and took 14 hours to pass. Sadly people started to hunt these birds mercilessy and the last confirmed sighting of a wild Passenger pigeon were the 22 march 1900.  The 1 september the last Passenger pigeon, named Martha, died at Cincinnati Zoo Cincinnati, Ohio.
