NORTHWEST TERRITORIES

(Compiled by Joel Greenberg)

There are several early reports from Mackenzie District, including one seen by Mackenzie himself between Fort Chipewyan and Great Slave Lake on July 25, 1789. The bird was considered a pest in the summer of 1837 at Fort Simpson. Breeding is deemed unlikely. (Schorger, The Passenger Pigeon, 1955).
