Canary sent via carrier pigeon

The first ever pigeon "piggy-back" flight, carrying a live cargo, a canary, twenty miles from Elizabeth, N.J. to New York. Must have been a bizarre experience for the canary. San Jose News - Mar 23, 1939

A bird carried by another bird. A good definition of redundancy.

PR Stunt! Ya gotta remember.... those birds that flew from Whereever to Home had to be taken from Home to Whereever in the first place!

Expat is right; and besides, having canaries fluttering about in a hospital can't be much fun for the asthma patients. Or, in 1939, the tuberculosis ward.
