Carrier Pigeons?

For anyone who reads fantasy, I am in a bind:  I need to make reference to homing birds, and I couldn’t decide whether to say carrier pigeons or ravens.  I feel like if I reference ravens, I’ll be accused of copycatting George R.R. Martin.  But it just sounds so awesome!  Anyway, what do you think?  Are there any other type of messenger birds I am unaware of?  Comment below!

 

Oh, and on a side/personal note, the sci-fi convention I am helping to organize just launched a kickstarter to help pay for new guests and other expenses.  Take a look, and donate if you can!  Thanks!

  1. Choose a new kind of bird? Eagles. Hawks. Doves. Sparrows. Something that makes sense to your world.
