Homing Pigeons

Today we went to Orillia to learn about Homing Pigeons, as were used in World War 1. Two guys named Mike and Tom arranged for all our kids to divide into groups and write down messages to be attached to a pigeon’s leg  and the pigeons were driven across town to be released and find their way back with their messages  Very cool to see.  The kids also watched a short film about Homing pigeons and  listened to the men speak about their experiences raising and racing pigeons.
