"Pigeons have been used as messengers and spies for centuries. During World War I, the birds were fitted with cameras so they could take photos beyond enemy lines. A pigeon named Cher Ami was even awarded the French Croix de Guerre (Cross of War) for heroic service! Despite their bravery, spy pigeons prefer peacetime missions. Perhaps that's why a few have been spotted flying over Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. Who sent these birds and what are they looking for?
