Racer X escaped this morning while we were at church. We were very upset about this until I started walking the neighborhood to see if anyone had noticed a tame pigeon and found out that everybody has rescued this pigeon at one time or another. The pigeon club must have been bombarded with emails about him, trying to get him home (though nobody has gotten an answer yet). He has at least 3 temporary homes where he gets fed and watered and has a place to spend the night in safety. Brie and her family have adopted him, too - and they call him Bambi.
In short, this pigeon is not going to fly on home by himself. Why should he, when he can live like a king here in New Albin!?
Update: He's perched happily on a line right now, surveying his domain. Silly (cute) bird.
