New-to-Me: Online Museum / Archive of Pigeon Research

Via my Reddit alert: an online museum / archive of pigeon research. Not sure how new it is, but the domain name was registered at the beginning of February. From the front page: “The online pigeon library and museum is the personal collection of Adam Archer, NSW Australia. The resources here were gathered over many years, and are published on this site for the benefit of anyone seeking to learn more about these wonderful creatures. Items are slowly being uploaded to the online collection.” There are 260 items at this writing.

Database of Pigeon Activity in Movies and TV

New-to-me, and man do I love the Internet: a database that tracks pigeon activity in movies and television. “Did you know that way back in season one of Game of Thrones, at exactly the 55-minute mark of episode 9, Arya Stark looks up at the sky and sees a flock of wild pigeons? Did you also note that 57 minutes and 20 seconds into the 1999 film The Matrix, a group of pigeons with only average training fly through the scene only to be completely ignored by all the characters?”
