Don't let the pigeon lose the race

What do you do when you go to Florida?

Swim in the ocean?

No way.

Walk on the beach?

Uh uh.

Play golf?


You go to a racing pigeon auction!

The pigeon being bid on is the one in the lit box.
(The highest bid when I was there was $4700.)

This shows the lineage of the pigeons:

And afterwards, you could have some jambalaya!

I found out about this auction because on a recent flight, my husband sat next to a fantastic guy who runs racing pigeon auctions. I mean, what are the odds?

He was so nice to me and just the person I need for my racing pigeon research. Yay.
