As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Nearly nine days after it was spotted, caught and handed over to the local police, the police has now handed over the pigeon which was suspected to have flown from across the border from Pakistan to a bird lover here to take its care. The pigeon was on Wednesday handed over to a bird lover of the area Ramanjit Singh, police said.

Ramanjit is owner of a facility which takes care of birds and pets said SSP Pathankot, Rakesh Kaushal. The white female pigeon has been kept in the company of a male pigeon here, Ramanjit Singh told reporters. He said that he is feeding the birds with wheat, lentils, pigeon peas and black grams. "The birds are periodically medically examined also," said Singh.
