Wild Pigeons Nesting on West Branch of Pine Creek

The Ulysses (Potter Co., Pa.) Sentinel a recent date days: "Wild pigeons are nesting on the head of the West Branch of Pine Creek and its tributaries, in this county, about 19 miles from Ulysses. The nesting is reported to be about four miles long, and extending westward daily. A new body of birds came in Sunday morning and if they are not driven out bids fair to be a large nesting. The number of men in the nesting section cannot fall short of 600 — some estimate the number at 1,000.
