greetings from the pigeon club

RISD-Pigeon-Club-in-Providence,RI





















yes, this is a real thing at my son's college and yes, he is a member. apparently the founders of the pigeon club are on a quest to end pigeon discrimination through educating the public about the pigeon's contributions to humankind over the years. here they are posing for the camera. I believe they were especially cooperative because I was with one of the club's members.

I'd like to see Ian convince my ornithophobic daughter about the merits of pigeons! (Do you know why these birds have been tagged?)

Love the photo!
What's the difference between a pigeon and a dove?

Hi Alexa! I think they are being trained as carrier pigeons, but I will double check with Ian.

& Anthony, supposedly they are the same bird with different color feathers.
