September 2014 marks 100 years since the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon. It’s estimated that the population of these migrant birds fell from 3.7 billion individuals to 0 in about 40 years, largely due to human impact, habitat destruction, and a lack of regulation on hunting, trapping, and their use in competitive tourneys.

A company handily based here in Champaign makes them and is selling these neat-o pens into the world. Sorry, you missed their Kickstarter; but you can order one from their web store and get one once they catch up on all the orders.
