I've been spending some time on Yahoo Answers and someone asked what to do about a homing pigeon they found that wouldn't leave. I told them to send me pictures, and it turns out it is a roller. It does not have a band, and I told them it can't be released again because it won't return to it's previous home and will surely become hawk food.

The person isn't able to care for the bird and would like to find it a home. It's healthy and a pretty bird (he looks to be an almond splash?)! He said it was tame as well. If I had the money, I'd just have the little guy shipped over here. I know we've got quite a few Cali members here, so I hope someone can adopt him!

The guy's email is, reptilesarecool@flash.net, and he's in the San Fransisco bay area.

And here's pictures of the bird!

Nice looking bird, yes thats a roller. If the loft is near, the bird may return. As long as it can see the loft from the air.
