Appearance of Immense Flocks of Pigeons at Pennsylvania

During the latter part of last week immense flocks of wild pigeons made their appearance in this vicinity. A great many were captured in nets by our sportsmen, near this place. On Saturday they were offered in our markets at seventy-five cents per dozen. We hear of large numbers being caught in the neighborhood of Williamsport.

April 18, 1868. Pigeons. Sunbury American 4(25): 3.
