776_pp_ulna_leftToday’s animation is the left ulna of a passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) recovered archaeologically from an American Indian village site and now held in trust by the  Virginia Museum of Natural History. The passenger pigeon became extinct one century ago this year and it seems fitting to post this animation to coincide with Virgina Commonwealth University’s celebration of Darwin Day today.  We are printing as well seven passenger pigeon bones using our MakerBot Replicator today.
