drtfa, but i thought pigeons fly out over the ocean when they reach old age as a form of instinctive euthanasia.  also, pigeons are the rats of the sky.  nobody will miss them.

RTFA and he had no evidence to back up his claims. Not a very good 'scientist'

Some experiments have been done in the UK using GPS trackers, using that data it seemed like the birds used a set of landmarks to guide themselves home.

Given that landmarks, at that height, can be seen from over 40 miles away, as long as the birds were able to orient themselves in the general direction of their home loft they could be up to 80 miles out and still be able to fly home.

Wrong. We'd fly have our homing pigeons released in Colorado and New Mexico and they'd make their way back to our house in Oklahoma. The infrasound is an interesting idea but definitely needs more support. It is probably a combination of things.

Well, I can't say that I wouldn't intentionally disappear either if someone dropped me off anywhere with the name "Jersey"...

Can we send the old ladies who feed those flying rats there too?
