The once common Eskimo curlew (Numenius borealis), so-named because it bred in the far northern reaches of the Alaskan and Canadian tundra, was decimated by hunters over the course of the nineteenth century. The species was in precipitous decline by the end of the nineteenth century, and, sadly, birders and ornithologists have long considered it to be on the brink of extinction, if not irrefutably gone forever.
