The Growing Passion for Flying Birmingham Roller Pigeons

Hosted by

Birmingham roller pigeons were first bred in England in the 1800's. Now the sport has its own world cup. About one third of America's 5000 breeders live in Southern California, including some former gang members. Jens Gould of KCRW's Independent Producer Project has more. (For some beautiful pictures of flying roller pigeons, check the WWLA blog.)
