Walking Pigeon picked up

The pigeon owner from the nearby village of Metcalfe, Ontario, called and dropped by to pick up the bird. Apparently his pigeons have been watched by a goshawk causing many pigeons to flee, which this female did. The bird expended so much energy flying without replenishment that its muscle mass was so depleted that it could no longer fly. The fancier will keep her now for breeding purposes.
