‘Sprint’ is probably the fastest most  powerful pigeon we have.  However, he tends to spend some nights away from home.  I have no idea where he goes… Unfortunately, it means I can’t use him for Project Bird’s Eye.  

I have added a new page.  I chose Neubronner as the name of the loft, named after the pioneer of aerial photography using pigeons.  Have a look and check again for updates.  I hope you find it interesting – even if you have no interest in pigeons.  

I’ve been thinking and planning this since last summer. I can’t wait for the potentially fascinating findings.

  1. Oh! Bu Yousef! What a gorgeous photo! The colors are spectacular – the fabulous blue-green shading into blue purple on his throat and that bright beady orange eye! You can see every grain of every feather. Total WOW.
