Mail Trivia VI

Did you know that...

pigeon post is a method of communication as old as the ancient Persians from whom the art of training the birds probably came?

Pigeons are effective to carry messages due to their natural homing abilities. The pigeons are transported to a destination in cages, where they are attached with messages. Then, naturally, the pigeon flies back to its home where the owner can read the mail.
