Army has no special technologies for communication at that times pigeons has been used for communication purposes specific bird used in army is “Cher Ami” the meaning of “Cher Ami” in french language is “Dear Friend” in US army they kept 2 Lacks birds for communication purpose but “Cher Ami” helped army peoples for 12 times in war in important war it saved 194 soldiers life award has been given which is the prestigious award in army and for keeping their memory one leg is kept in museum Another thing is that “reerdon” he is in british He kept a pigeon name called “Boomerang” but he has not trained that birds for the race purpose just he kept normally but he is not interested to keep pigeons long he sold “Boomerang” to his friend one person is south spain the distance between the two places is 1800 KM at one point of time the character of the pigeon has been changed we mentioned already that it was not trained for race this bird was in south spain for 10 years at one point of time. It started to fly it reached reardon’s home peoples got surprised and asked to reardon but reardon also surprised he also don’t know about this behavior but he told one interesting thing Boomerang father has been escaped from hunters at one time that bird’s one side feather was damaged very hard but with that pain, it has been escaped and returned to loft the distance travelled is 60 miles that kind of strength homing pigeons have the character is more agressive when we go nearby, we can see their aggressiveness over other birds it will dominate other pigeons Next category we are going to see is “Flying pigeons” in that there are 3 categories Tumblers, Tipplers, Rollers Tumbler pigeons are called as “Karna pigeon” in Tamil. There eyes will be white and green mostly white colours the specialty of tumblers is when they fly in air fly in a high altitude it will do “somersaults” it will do 10-20 somersaults flying time will be 4-5 hours next is “Tipplers” peoples are keeping tippler birds also specialty of this type of birds are fly in a high altitude like eagles when you stand in ground and watch this birds, it will look like ants that much altitude it will fly.
