A racing pigeon is a registered homing pigeon.

These pigeons are dropped off in a location and have to make their way back to their home in Amarillo. Each pigeon has to make it back to their loft and once they cross the antenna, their time is recorded on a clock. The flying speed is broke down into yards per minute to determine the winner.

You can join the Amarillo Racing Pigeon Club by contacting John Somerville at 806-679-1108 or by email at jdsomerville@suddenlink.net.
