Pigeons in Great Numbers in Spotsylvania County

The Fredericksburg (Va.) Herald states that wild pigeons in great numbers have made their appearance in Spotsylvania county. The forests in the neighborhood of Dr. J.E. Chancellor's, Catharine Furnace, &c., seem to be alive with these swift winged visitors. The favorite point for roosting appears to be in the vicinity of Catharine Furnace, between the route of the Fredricksburg and Gordonsville Railroad, and the Plank Road.

March 15, 1855. Wild pigeons. Washington D.C. Evening Star 5(685): 3.
