More Talks on the Way

Live or via Zoom, talks about the role of homing pigeons in our military and as part of our heritage are on the way for 2022. If you are interested in having me speak, please contact me at

In 2021, I gave talks at libraries, museums and historical societies. They were fun and attracted a wide audience from bird lovers to military aficionados. Here are a few testimonials:

Our audience was captivated by Elizabeth’s engaging and enlightening presentation!  A well-researched presentation about the critical role of pigeons in military communications.  Highly recommend her book and talk.

               Elizabeth gave a wonderful presentation at our library.  It was fascinating to learn  more about pigeons and all that they have done for our country.  She offered  historical information that I would never have know otherwise.

In October of this year, I got to visit Jon Bernhard, who has a pigeon loft in Westbrook, ME. I so enjoyed being with the birds and holding them. Here are a few photos of my visit.

The birds are so strong!
