fancy that! by gozoinklings

fancy that!

... passed a few groups of men with van's piled high with caged birds - turned out they were racing pigeon fanciers from malta who had driven to gozo to set their birds free to fly home - wonder who got there first !

i loved the painted images on this guy's cage which you see better enlarged

here's a bird shot http://365project.org/gozoinklings/melting-pot-of/2013-11-23
This is a fascinating and a very highly competitive sport. Lots of money is involved with some serious cash prices all over the World!

how interesting, the person who owned the property where I live before us had racing pigeons , the coal miners back in those days had quite a competition going apparently
