Pigeons for identification[edit]

You might want to post this one at the WP:PIGEONS talk page, just in case they're not watching this page... MeegsC | Talk 08:55, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
OK. I thought the photograph might be of interested to the pigeon task force when I first saw it. I moved from the general bird talk page to the domesticated pigeon task force talk page. Snowman (talk) 11:09, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
I saw the original posting--I do keep a watch on the Birds Project talk page. I just haven't had time to look at the photos beyond a cursory look. It can be just as hard to identify the breed of a domesticated pigeon from a picture as it is to identify the species of any other bird but I'm sure that either Sting or I will get a good look at them and see if there's anything we can use. Thanks for pointing them out Snowman.--Onorio (talk) 12:45, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


Would you like me to put an infobox on every pigeon page that has an image, such as the infobox on the page for "Jacobin (pigeon)"? For most it would mean putting the page heading and the image in the infobox. At least they would have infoboxes and so details can be added later. Snowman (talk) 15:06, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

The only concern I would have about that is the distinction between breeds of domesticated pigeons and other species of pigeons. For example, it wouldn't be appropriate to put the Domesticated Pigeon Breeds infobox on a page like Victoria Crowned Pigeon because that's not a breed of domesticated pigeon. I think you could simply follow links from the List of pigeon breeds article and you shouldn't go astray. And this would be a big help. I'd like to hear Sting's thoughts on this as well because I think Sting has quite a bit more time invested in the domesticated pigeons articles on WP than I do.--Onorio (talk) 15:54, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Just the ones in the Domesticated pigeon categories. Snowman (talk) 16:22, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Stralsunder Highflier --> Stralsund Highflier[edit]

Hallo, just wondering: isn't Stralsund Highflier the English name of the German Stralsunder Hochflieger? I am refering to the EE-List of pigeon breeds. -- (talk) 12:02, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm not a pigeon guy, but I think that you're probably best asking your question at the main Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Birds page. This task force appears to be inactive, with no active users currently participating (and it has even been suggested for deletion recently). --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 22:55, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
