    The desire to go 'HOME' is an overwhelming force. I am frequently called upon by our animal control agent or the local feed mill to collect 'lost' homers. If I can not track down their owners, I treat with antibiotics and feed up to get them healthy. When they start pacing in the aviary, I know they are ready to 'go home'. Upon release most leave for home. Others will leave for a short span of time and return here to their new home.

    How do you know that the pigeon flew north? A straight shot is 528 miles. I don't think the pigeon stuck to the roads. Still a neat story.
