        Domesticated Pigeons

        In this video segment from WILD TV, a pigeon coop sits atop a high-rise apartment building in New York City. Daniel “Danny Boy” Murray has been raising pigeons there for 31 years. These are domesticated pigeons, not street pigeons that he has trained. When he lets them fly away free, they take flight as a flock and then return to their home with Danny. He can tell when they want to come back to the coop. They give him a signal. You can tell he loves the pigeons.
