Immense Flocks of Pigeons Over Somerset

During the last few days immense flocks of wild pigeons passed over our town towards the Northeast exactly an opposite direction to that which pigeons usually take at this season of the year. The presumption is, that they were driven from the Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina by a snow storm.

November 17, 1846. Wild pigeons. Somerset Herald and Farmers' and Mechanics' Register 5(1): 3.
