Spring Brings Immense Flocks of Wild Pigeons

After a long and tedious winter Spring has once more fairly come upon us. Innumerable flocks of wild pigeons have, for several days been passing on their annual northern flight. And on Monday evening we had warm and genial showers with thunder and lightning to match — and which would have done no discredit, to a sultry night in August.
