"The Lost Bird Project" on Pioneer Public Television

Watch as sculptor Todd McGrain memorializes five birds -- the Great Auk, Carolina Parakeet, Labrador Duck, Passenger Pigeon and Heath Hen -- driven to extinction in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. McGrain searches for the last-known locations of the birds and seeks permission to install six-foot-tall bronze bird sculptures on those sites.
