The RPRA stated that pigeons have unimaginable talents and are able to fly at a speed of over 70 miles (nearly 113 kilometers) per hour.

“They have been used in both world wars due to their skills in speed endurance and their homing abilities,” the RPRA continued.

The RPRA association also agrees that pigeons likely were the earliest birds domesticated by man due to their calmness and the trust in nature.

“They also have the ability to return to a central location so they are easy to keep—they always return. Meanwhile, pigeons have the ability to deliver messages; Julius Caesar used them in his battles to send messages to and from his troops and occupied areas.”

Perhaps you have an idea that pigeons are dull creatures unlike the other birds. But it’s not that true. A research study which was published in 2017 proved that pigeons understand the concepts of time and space. Apart from this pigeons are also considered as perfect navigators.

It said that they have the ability to  find their way back to their nests from 1.3k miles (nearly 2.1k kilometers) away. The fascinating part is that these creatures are able to find their way to nests even if they’re taken away from the nests and located in complete isolation and rotated to make them unaware of the direction of their nest!
