Another Great Pigeon Roost

The Lancaster, Ohio, Examiner, in a notice of the great pigeon roost in Illinois, says: "There is one now, about sixteen miles north of this place, near Kirkersville, Licking county; which, it is said, covers a tract of five miles in diameter, and which has been visited by many of our citizens. We noticed a wagon in our market yesterday morning, loaded with live pigeons, brought from the same place."

June 17, 1843. Columbia Democrat 7(8): 2.
