An Arizona woman recently had to evacuate herself and her 50 pigeons when the Yarnell area blaze started heading for her home. Having no place to take them, she was forced to release them.
They didn’t seem to want to leave any more than she wanted to see them go. She said that to encourage them out of their loft she had to throw out food as an enticement.
The woman has been caring for the birds for years, having found many of them herself while working as a gardener.
Over the years her flock has grown and to house them all she picked up some carpentry skills and built them an aviary the size of a carport.
She said, “It’s me and them. I live alone in the middle of nowhere.”
She also mentioned how hard it was for her to walk away from them knowing they’d be expecting her to be returning home soon.
Her hope is that as pigeons have traditionally strong homing instincts, they’ll find their way back when it’s safe to return.
Started by a lightning strike on June 28th, officials say the fire is still a considerable way from being contained.
Pigeons can be quite a nuisance in certain instances, but for the most part the birds aren’t considered a threat. This week, Chinese officials reportedly probed the behinds of approximately 10 thousand pigeons that had been chosen for release today, as part of the National Day festivities.
Pigeons can be quite a nuisance in certain instances, but for the most part the birds aren’t considered to be a threat.
This week, Chinese officials reportedly inspected the behinds of approximately 10 thousand pigeons that had been chosen for release today, as part of the National Day festivities.
The reason for the unusual probe is because government staffers had fears there could be a possible terrorist attack during the celebration. Reportedly, the birds’ legs, feathers and anuses were all checked for what was called suspicious objects.
After the pigeons were cleared of all potential threats, they were loaded onto a truck and transported to Beijing for their release.
It’s unclear why police in the city thought the birds may have been used for nefarious activity, however it is known law enforcement officials believed terrorists might target a crowded public event.
It seems as though authorities wanted to be extra cautious prior to the event. Planting something like bombs inside pigeons isn’t as far fetched as you might think.
A representative for a Chinese pigeon fan site explained “It is possible for them to carry things such as explosives. They could carry something on their legs, under a wing, or in their anus.”
A Japanese racing pigeon had some internal navigation system glitches and ended up landing on Vancouver Island. Nearly 5 thousand miles from home, the disoriented bird was also underweight and parasite ridden.
A Japanese racing pigeon had some internal navigation system glitches and ended up landing on Vancouver Island.
Nearly 5 thousand miles from home, the disoriented bird was also underweight and parasite ridden. It was nursed back to health at a local avian rescue facility.
The pigeon was wearing two tags, one including an electronic tracker and the other with the owner’s phone number.
When contacted, the owner decided the transit fees to get the bird back to Japan were too steep.
After getting government clearance, the pigeon was passed along to an area collector who took it in with open arms. He said that it’s part of the honor code among keepers.
It’s rare for racing pigeons to lose their way, and there’s a theory that those who accidentally ended up far off course may have traveled there on a transit vessel of some kind.
Under typical conditions, the birds respond to the Earth’s magnetic field in a way that mimics using a compass.
Studies have shown the incoming data is compared to a map they have assembled and stored in the brain.

CHICAGO — A Windy City politician harping about Chicago’s “pigeon poop station” really got dumped on while giving an interview about the mess the birds were making of the L station.
According to CBS 2, pigeons are a massive nuisance around the Irving Park Blue Line station.
Their dookie and feathers constantly cover the sidewalk commuters need to use make it to the station.
CBS 2 reported that Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade for the past year has been trying to get lawmakers to deal with all the doo doo.
On Tuesday, Andrade was giving an interview to CBS 2 at the station, while at the same time badmouthing the pigeons.
Well, let’s just say the pigeons dropped an instant rebuttal mid interview—right into Andrade’s hair.
Talking to the CBS reporter, Andrade hilariously replied, “Did I just get…? I did, didn’t I?”
Yes you did Rep. Andrade. Yes, you did.
