This movie reveals the strength of the Portuguese Pigeons Sport and how tuff is our competition over here.
I live 30 km on the north of the Lisbon Province and when I was waiting for my own pigeons of one MD race from Talavera - Spain (370 km) organized by the Lisbon province, I see many of these pigeons passing over here, precisely on the middle of their race.
