Carrier pigeons with whistle attached re…BEIJING, CHINA: Carrier pigeons with whistle attached rest on a rooftop ledge, 03 February 2004 in Beijing. The tradition of whistling pigeons goes back hundreds of years in Beijing and while the hobby of raising birds has survived political turmoil, the outbreak of bird flu now is now putting it to another test.
