Phenomenon of Immense Numbers of Wild Pigeons

Bel Air, (Maryland) January 3.

Wild Pigeons, in immense numbers, are at present to be seen in the woods and old fields of this county. Flocks of larger size than we have ever seen flying from the Southward within the last week. We do not know what, at this season of the year, can drive them from that section of country, to which they annually migrate in the fall.

January 15, 1833. A phenomenon. Connecticut Courant 69(3547): 2.
