Intelligence is the first quality of a good pigeon. An intelligent bird while homing will take the best out of favourable circumstances, it will fly low and prefer the valley when a headwind is prevailing; with favourable wind, it will choose the zone in the sky which is likely to help it to its loft in the shortest time.
