Messenger Pigeons?

Answer

Messenger Pigeons is a domesticated rock pigeon that carries messages. Pigeons usually can only carry messages to their home. They have to be transported to the location where the message is being sent from. Some pigeons have been trained to fly back and forth, up to 100 miles. A pigeon can carry up to 2.5 ounces on their back. Pigeons were used during WWI and WWII to carry messages back to their home coop. Enemies would often shoot the birds down when spotted.
