Race In The Wild • Homing Pigeons
A pigeon isn’t a bird usually known for its noble or daring deeds. Perhaps the time has come to change that perception.
Homing pigeons have been utilized throughout history for a variety of tasks. In World War I, they sent messages. Within the past 40 years, they had a shot at carrying lab samples between European hospitals. Today, they monitor air pollution in London. And here in the Wiregrass, they provide an entertaining hobby for Headland, Alabama, resident John Ross Helms.
