HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) A hundred years ago, the last passenger pigeon died at the Cincinnati Zoo. They were hunted to extinction, with the last one dying Sept. 1, 1914.

Now there's a documentary that looks at the bird's extinction and current wildlife habitat loss.

The film, "From Billions to None," will be shown Sunday at 2 p.m. CDT in the John James Audubon State Park Theater in Henderson.

In addition, the Kentucky Parks Department says an exhibit on the passenger pigeon will be on display in the Audubon Museum lobby during September. Both the film and exhibit are free.
