Can you tell more about this bird? Is it native to your area, or to the tropics? Does it fly? So far I haven't any idea, but with more info, you never know!

It was at a flea market being sold by a farmer who had chickens and pigeons, looked like a hawk in a pigeon suit

Well, the pigeon hawk is used in falconry. So I looked at a bunch of web sites for falconry. Didn't see any name close to whay you put. Only short name I saw was the gyr (gyr falcon).

Maybe you will see the name for yourself? Here is one site which listed lots of raptors used in falconry.


Good luck!

A giant runt?

That's it, the giant runt. This person clearly had a "w" where the u should have been. They had white with black spots and they were huge. Pigeons are a must have in my future and I've decided to do some research on these beasts.

I used to have some runts, there beautiful and HUGE.

I would get them very young to make them more tame.

If you ever have questions on pigeons let me know. :)
