Is this bird now hanging around by choice, or was this photo taken just before he flew off to be sucked into the engine of an F-16?

Because my head doesn't work like other people's ...
Harry is certainly cute (for a pigeon) and may even have a mascot-like position with the Brit forces ... but has anyone considered what might happen if Harry starts hanging out with an Iraqi flock? (or, more likely, eaten by an Iraqi hawk or falcon, or whatever winged predators they have) Imagine birds all over Iraq dropping dead of some British pigeon-illness to which they have no resistance.

I don't think I can claim that though. I think Chevy Chase did that on SNL news back in '75. I've been waiting for 28 years to say that, so I should get the patience award.

Fox News showed a pic of Harry last night (same one, I think) in which he was described as one of the sniffer bird, including obligatory 'canary in a coal mine' references by the co-anchors.
