    you need to give it a good hosing before you release it..... my pigeons will only take 20-30 minutes straight fly from a 45 min drive..... imagine how long will it take that guy...

    Bet if you had tagged his leg, you might well see him again. [​IMG]

    Yep, it will return, heck you could have taken it to another state, if would still return.

    He might have beat me back, all I can hope for is that he was scared enough not to get back in the coop...
