Ways pigeons might home

Here is a fascinating YouTube video discussing different ways a pigeon might home.

The people shown here are our heroes, who are really important people in the animal navigation world and especially in Pigeon navigation.

You will find Tim Guildford at Oxford University, who believes that pigeons follow landmarks, The Wiltchokos who believe in magnetic cues, Anna Galgiardo who says it is all to do with smell and Rupert Sheldrake who has the idea of Morphic resonance: here, the pigeons have a connection to their loft.
