How's that for a sign of the times? A flock of carrier pigeons is to be released over San Jose, California, to monitor air pollution levels. The pigeons will be fitted with some interesting technology (http://news.scotsman.com/international.cfm?id=165992006) to assist them in their research. Teaching them to send the text messages must have been a challenge. :rolleyes:

What a waste of a good carrier pigeon. They should have come and got some of the flying rats from Perth:} for their experiment:sad: :E
