Pigeon Roost in Arkansas

A pigeon roost is mentioned by the Fort Smith (Ark.) Herald as existing in that region. It commences about 28 miles from Fort Smith, and extends for upwards of 20 miles on either side of the Poteurs, to within a few miles of Waldron, in Scott county. The number of birds is beyond computation.
