Pigeons are monogamous (mate for life). This birds have made important contribution for the humanity, especially in times of war where they have been put to use by making messengers. Also pigeons are used for race. Trained racing pigeons can fly at speeds up to 110 miles thanks to their impressive breast muscles that makes 1/3 of their total body weight.
