                                          the wongderful world of pigeons

       it is night.all is quiet .the soldiers are asleep while a quard watches ror theenemy .there is a flash ,and the sound of guns! They are being attacked! Hundredsof enemy soldiers rush towards them. They are all going to be killed unless they get help.What should they do?

       An officer writes a short message quickly on a small piece of paper :'Being attacked! Hurry!'

       He rolls up the paper and puts it into a small case, and then reashes into a cage and gets a bird.Attaching the message to  its leg,he sets the bird loose.It immediately flies into the air and disappers in the dark.

       Wll the bird arrive in time? Will they be saved?

       Though it may seem hard to believe,the bird the officer uses is the same bird often seen in public parks -the pigeon. PIgeons have a wonderful sense of direction and can find their way home over long distances. Indeed,pigeons have been known to fly home from as far away as 1,800 kilometres.That is why pigeons have been used since ancident times to carry the news or even the mail.However,it was in war that they found their greatest use.During both World War I and II, pigeons were employed by armies to carry messages to and from the front lines,saving the lives of many soldiers and even helping with some important victories.

       How do pigeons find their way? Pigeons appear to have a compass inside them that tells them which way is north. How this compass works remains a mystery. Of course, since a compass alone is not enough to find one's way,they also appear to use their sight and even their sense of semll to tell them which way they should go.Unlike humans,they never get lost and can always find their way home.

世界上最炫的鸽子

在一个宁静的夜晚,士兵们都已熟睡只有不锈钢手表的声音,在一道闪光后听见了枪声。他们被袭击了,数百名敌兵冲向他们,如果再不得到援助他们全都会死,他们该做什么?一个军官迅速的写了一条简讯“受到袭击,快!”他将纸条卷起将它放入一个小盒子里,再从笼子中取出一只信鸽;将信件捆绑在鸽子的腿上,在放鸽子飞翔;它立刻飞向空中消失在黑暗之中。鸽子会及时到达吗?他们会得救吗?让人难以置信的是,军官使用的鸽子就是一只与平常公园里的鸽子一样的鸽子,鸽子具有惊人的方位感,它能找到离家很远的回家的路,事实上鸽子往回的飞行远至1800公里。这就是使用鸽子传送新闻信件的原因。然而在战争中鸽子起了巨大的作用,在一二战时期鸽子被用来传送信息到前线,使许多士兵的生命得到了挽回还取得很很多重要的胜利。鸽子是如何找到路的?鸽子体内似乎有指北针,使得它能找到北方,这是什么原理到现在仍然是个谜,当然并不是绝对的指南针,它们也使用感觉和嗅觉告诉他们应该往哪里去。与人类不同的是它们从未迷失方向并且总能找到回家的路。
