SEPTEMBER 11TH: Cheryl Kimball talk on Passenger Pigeons at 11AM. Cheryl Kimball has been writing the Nature Talks column for the Manchester Union Leader since 2014 mostly covering the natural world from the vantage point of her 100- acre farm in Middleton, NH, where she has lived for 28 years. Kimball has been a serious birdwatcher since eighth grade. A freelance writer, she has published a half dozen books on horses. Cheryl Kimball’s fascination with the passenger pigeon started in high school when she read The Silent Sky: The Incredible Extinction of the Passenger Pigeon by Allan W. Eckert published in 1965. The Silent Sky chronicled the rapid extinction at the hands of humans of a bird whose flocks once darkened the skies for hours at a time including in New Hampshire as far north as the White Mountains. Kimball will talk about the history and biology of the passenger pigeon, the death of the last known member of the species in 1914 in the Cincinnati Zoo, and attempts at “de-extinction” of this bird that represents the worst of human impact on the natural world.
