The Birds I Never Met | North America’s Extinct Birds

From Atlas Pro.

Recently I looked into a number of extinct birds from all around the world, but few of them shed light on those that I would’ve lived alongside. Today we’re "borrowing" my mom’s field guide on the Birds of Eastern and Central North America to learn about those birds that I might’ve witnessed had I been alive only a century ago!
