    The night loft
    (I) The night loft should be situated as far as
    possible from wires, trees, or other eminencies
    which might injure the birds in flight.
    (II) Shutters–Since night flying pigeons are trained
    and fed at night they must be given an
    opportunity to rest during the day. Doors and
    windows of a night loft are equipped with
    shutters that exclude light without cutting off
    circulation of air.
    (III) Lights–When birds are working at night the
    interior of the loft is brightly Illuminated. A light is
    placed above the trap in such a position that it
    shines faintly on the lighting board. No lights
    should be placed on the outside of the night loft.
    (IV) Lighting board–The lighting.board is larger
    than that normally used for day birds. It should
    have a length of at least five feet, and extend out
    from the loft at least three feet. Aluminum paint
    should be used on the lighting board to make it
    faintly luminous; the board should be repainted
    frequently. This would not apply where lofts have
    dormer type of trap.
    (c) Stocking the night loft -Continued breeding of
    night flying pigeons has not demonstrated that
    the ability to home at night is transmitted to the
    youngsters. In fact night birds, because of their
    changed mode of living, are seldom in fit
    condition for breeding, and will usually produce
    youngsters that are below the desired physical
    standard. For these reasons it is best to stock a
    night loft with youngsters from proved day fliers.
    (d) Preliminary training–Youngsters should be
    placed in the night loft when 28 days old.
    Breaking them to the loft and Trap should be
    done in the day time. During the first two weeks
    the schedule given for day birds is to be followed.
    (e) Exercise–During the third week the single toss
    day flights are to be continued as for day birds. In
    addition, the youngsters should be exercised late
    In the afternoon so that they learn to trap to the
    loft at dusk. They should be fed at this time by
    artificial light. Night birds should never be released
    for exercise after dark. To drive birds from a
    lighted loft out into the darkness is certain to
    result in injuries and losses. The youngsters
    continue their exercising progressively later, being
    released late in the daylight but so that their flying
    arrival is made in the dusk and darkness of night.
    After the fifth week they should be ready for night
    training.
    (f) Preliminary night training -Even after years of
    experience pigeons never lose their fear of flying
    at night. This fact is most important in the training
    of youngsters. The pigeoneer must bear in mind
    that the bird he tosses into the dark is always
    very frightened. If youngsters are given their first
    night training tosses in the evening, after dark,
    they are confused and frightened, and are likely to
    fly blindly into wires and trees, or settle to the
    ground and await daylight. Youngsters that settle
    to the ground on the first few night flights will do
    so on subsequent flights, and seldom develop
    into reliable night fliers. Morning tosses in the
    darkness just before dawn have proved by far
    the most successful in the training of night fliers.
    Youngsters tossed in the morning before dawn
    are as confused and frightened as if tossed in the
    evening; however, before they can stray very far
    from the loft area, or attempt to settle to the
    ground, it becomes light ;and they can easily find
    their way to the loft. Continued tosses in the
    morning before daylight will impress upon the
    bird that, even though he is confused or lost, all
    he need do is remain in the air until there is
    sufficient light for him to find his way home.
    Having thus overcome his initial fear his natural
    instinct and intelligence will come to his aid, and
    he will attempt to find his way hone through the
    darkness. After a number of successful flights to
    the loft in the darkness before dawn the pigeon
    will have gained enough confidence to be safely
    tossed in the evening, or at any time during the
    night.
    (g) Direction training–Night flying pigeons are
    very directional, and car-not be successfully
    flown from all directions. A bird flying well from
    the south will usually not be reliable if released
    from the north. A few pigeons will fly equally well
    from all directions, but these must be considered
    exceptions. For this reason night birds should be
    trained only for the direction from which they will
    be used. To attempt to deviate from this course
    by more than 450 is certain to reduce greatly the
    effectiveness of the pigeon. If it is expected that
    night birds will be required for flights from two
    directions, for example, from the south and from
    the west, two teams of pigeons should be
    trained, one for each direction.
    (h) Altitude training–nights birds that fly close to
    the ground upon release cannot be considered
    reliable messengers even though they do return
    to the loft in good time. Such birds are almost
    certain to fly eventually into wires or trees and
    injure themselves. Therefore a well-trained night
    bird should immediately ascend to a high altitude
    upon release, and make his flight to the loft at
    such altitude. The following method has been
    very successful in teaching young night birds to
    ascend at once upon release, and to remain high
    in the air. A field of-high corn, cane or reeds in
    the vicinity of the loft is selected. On a clear,
    moonlight night the youngsters are gently tossed
    one at a time into the tops of this vegetation. The
    pigeons will not be flying fast enough to injure
    themselves. However, they become so
    frightened in attempting to fly clear that upon
    freeing themselves they rise straight into the air to
    a high altitude. Two or three such tosses are
    generally sufficient to teach youngsters to climb
    rapidly to a great height immediately upon
    release. This training is not necessary in the case
    of youngsters which are exercised with old night
    birds, and who learn to follow the latter to high
    altitudes. Birds for this training must have
    successfully completed the training indicated in (f)
    above.
    (I) Releasing -Night birds should always be
    forcibly tossed into the air when released at night.
    Night birds should never be group tossed, or
    released from a basket. An open spot as far as
    possible from wires, trees, and buildings should
    be selected for the release of night birds. These
    points should be stressed in the training of
    handling and using personnel.

    Pigeons CAN fly during
    the night
    Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009 • Racing •

    Mr. Iustin Ciubotariu sent me the picture of one
    of his long distance pigeons that returned from
    a 800 Km race during the night, at 1:20 A.M. !
    “The Nightflier” is a pigeon born in 2006.
    The fancier often found him at the loft in the
    morning, after long distance races. He thought
    the pigeon was flying during the night but
    couldn’t be sure. After he switched from the
    mechanic to the electronic timing system, he
    finally proved that the pigeon was flying during
    the night. Coming home from a 800 KM race,
    the fancier heard the clock beeping at 1:20 A.M.
    and found the pigeon in the loft.
    So, there are pigeons that can and DO fly
    during the night. Not many of them do that,
    however, and I don’t know if this quality can be
    passed from parents to youngsters. I guess it
    also depends on weather, but still, any kind of
    night is still very dark for a bird that is not a cat
    after all. Smile
