The passenger pigeon, long thought to be totally extinct, has been reported alive in the wilds of Northern Michigan.
Prof. Philip Hadley, bacteriologist at the Univeristy
of Michigan, has notified the journal, Scienece, that while hunting in
an uninhabited wilderness in the northern peninsula of michigan, his companion,
familiar with the country, pointed out a bird which he declared to be a
passenger pigeon, such as he had seen in vast numbers in his younger days.
As Prof. Haley looked, the bird took flight, and all he could see was its
pigeon-like form and its pointed tail.
