Do they have a hunting preserve near there that breeds their own birds?

There was a lodge near where I grew up that bred their own birds. They turned out to be fat tame birds (which I guess pleased the guests because it took the challenge out of them).

They walked around casually like pets if they didn't get shot when they were let loose. The lodge wasn't far from the road, and let's just say they weren't too car wise.

this is pheasant country but it might be possible there is a breeder but you would think the news crew would have checked?

Similar to a story I heard on the news a few days ago about pigeons in England riding the train. They wait on the platform for the train to show up, hop on the roof and ride to a nearby mall at the next stop. They hop off, eat the food scraps at the food court and fly back home. Guess they don't know the schedule for the return train.
