Look, They Come - Native American Indians by Mary Louise Holt
  Look, They Come  (2005)
Subject: Native American Indians
Dimensions (inches): 14 x 18
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Description: At one time the Passenger Pigeons were thought to be the most numerous birds on the planet. During migration, their flocks, sometimes a mile wide and up to 300 miles long, were so dense that they darkened the sky for hours or even days as they passed overhead. When they came down to roost in immense colonies the Native Americans could easily kill them with sticks. But when the settlers came they relentlessly pursued the birds using guns or even large nets. In this way thousands of birds could be caught in a single day. Many of them were shipped to markets in the east. The clearing of forests to make way for agriculture was probably also a factor that led to their total extinction by 1914.

I have depicted a flock of passenger pigeons flying south over the Ohio River in early autumn. That beautiful, green valley below will someday be the city of Cincinnati.
