Racing...Pigeons?


Driving in the car with my mom and dad to Rockford's downtown farmer's market last Friday, we happened upon a very interesting sight in the car next to us-Pulled behind the car in question was four individual, metal crates, stacked in twos, with this sign smack in the middle....

Racing Pigeons On Board

Yes ladies and gents, we were next to a real life pigeon racing truck. Apparently, our area has their own racing pigeons; Rock River Racers--Racing Pigeons.

R.R.R

I caught this little guy peaking out of one of the holes. He thinks he's so big and bad since he's part of a legit "team." LOL

Scoping out the competition...


So I only have one question.


Well DO you?

Do YOU want to join America's high flying sport; racing homing pigeons!?
