Great Haul of Pigeons at Covington Pennsylvania

Up in Covington last Saturday, at the place of Mr. Jacob Gress, were caught over nineteen hundred wild pigeons, say 2000 in round numbers. Mr. E. Harris and Mr. Gress inform us that the pigeon roost has been broken up by the hunters from Scranton and other places, who gave them no rest. — Wilkes-Barre Times.

April 5, 1860. Great haul of pigeons. Jeffersonian 19(13): 2.
