Hey there everyone.

I’m in a situation here.

Today my pet pigeon PJ decided to take flight at 8:10am.
We were at a dog park 4.5 km away from our house. We have been to the park before.
Pj was on the ground picking at gravel. Dog came and Pj flew up then down. Pj knews dogs very well and she taunt them in a way.
But today was different, after the dog left. Pj flew up and did a few mins of circling. Then disappeared. < ** she usually free flight then land near me, I call she hops on my shoulder. >
We then went back to the parking lot then back to the path we were when she left. No signs of her.
At this point i figured she’s just fly back home.

This is the first time she has taken off from a location that isn’t her home.
Usually at home she has outside perch and she’ll sit there for hours or would go a few hours flight. But making it home before dark and rain storms.

I’m hopeful that she makes it back home before dark.

Has anyone been in this situation before? Or know what’s in a mind of a homer pigeon please let me know.

Thanks again.

We were 4.5km or 11 mins VIA Google map Driving from the take off location.
Yes she is a homing pigeon. She is only 3.5 months old.
But has taken off from home before for few hrs but never from an away location.

I went back to the park again at 11:05 am. Nothing.

I really hope so. Really miss her. And also Pj wouldn’t just go off for no reason.
And I know everytime she’s circles around above me, she’s gonna take off. I’m just surprised she would do it that yesterday.
Well, I’m still hopeful.
