A war memorial in Australia became the home of choice for a pigeon building a nest in the halls of Australian War Memorial, ahead of November 11’s Armistice Day, marking the end of World War One. Staff at the Australian War Memorial found the pigeon flying down to the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier to take the poppies.
The memorial said on their webpage that the pigeon “carefully crated a nest in lead up to Remembrance Day in an alcove above the stained-glass window of a wounded Australian soldier”.
