This is Audubon Society of Central Arkansas's monthly meeting. All are welcome to tune in. Following the presentation we will conduct our business. This month's presentation is about the Rock Pigeon. Throughout history, the pigeon (Columba livia) has been treasured as a source of companionship and protein, admired and utilized for its unique navigational and athletic abilities, and even worshiped as a timeless symbol of God’s grace. Today, it may be more maligned than it deserves. Jane Gulley will teach us about the role pigeons have played in our societies, and renew our sense of appreciation for the pigeon.
