Aerial, the ace photography pigeon

Hey gang. I’m Aerial, the ace photography pigeon. Did you know pigeons were once used to take secret pictures? They took pictures to help gather intelligence.

My family started taking secret pictures in 1903. They worked in the Bavarian Pigeon Corps. Some of my relatives worked really hard and took a lot of risks to help their country.

Me? I’m all-American, just like an eagle. And I still get up and take a few pictures with my trusty camera.
