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!
