A new arrival has made his way to North America from 5,000 miles away. A 1-year-old pigeon adorned with a tag on his foot is actually a racing bird from Japan. On May 10, he was set off on a 600-mile race. He didn’t make it, but instead made his way across the Pacific Ocean, landing in British Columbia last week. Bird experts don’t know if he landed on a boat somewhere along the way or flew the whole way on his own. Either way, the little guy made it and is now in good health.
