Its a mystery


I let a kit of 4 out on Thursday it was lovely clear blue sky they were going for about 50 minutes I looked up there's one pigeon left flying so I assumed maybe a hawk had chased them and they went down to hide away . So I got the one remaining bird down
Sat waiting for there other 3 but they didn't show up . Thought there safe some where and will return next morning . Came home from work no sign and I haven't seen them since so unless a plane hit them I am really lost for answer's .

Thoughts on Joe


Mom was going through the closets this weekend and came across a box of items that was gifted me from the late Joe Kelley. A lot of Joe's items were more of a fetish on tipplers throughout Great Britain. He had a stack of maps that were survey maps of Macclesfield, Manchester, Sheffield, etc. He used to think that in studying the weather of these areas that he was going to learn something profound from the guys that flew in these areas. A lot of the papers were correspondence between him and librarians or others that had access to weather maps and terrain maps.

help with feeding


Its obvious that the higher my birds fly the less chance they've got of escaping from the birds of prey , so can anyone recomend what corn I could give my birds so that they dont fly so high, at the moment there on depurative pilots go so high you cant see them , any help I would be gratefull,
