Product description

Who needs to fly to Africa or visit a safari park, when there is so much wildlife on our doorsteps? This book examines pigeons and discusses where city pigeons live, what they eat, what dangers they face, and why they like living so close to people. Special “spotter’s clues” symbols highlighting key pigeon behaviours and features are used throughout the book to enable readers to go on their own “city safari” once they have finished reading the book.

    Highly accurate

    As someone who spent a large amount of his 20's dealing with messenger pigeons on a large scale, I can truly say that this book was totally accurate, and completely awe inspiring (naturally, the birds were better than the book but it was truly heart warming to be brought back to my younger days).
    It reminds me of the time we walked through Berlin in the final days of the war, we had pigeons then, and I'm sure they have pigeons now.
    This books accurately portrays the behavior and emotions of the pigeon, however, it leaves out the key danger of pigeons being shot down by enemy fire.

    This book is a must read for all 5-8 year old's and all war veterans.

    God Bless and Goodbye.
