Clay Pigeons


Clay pigeons are found almost exclusively around Clay county, Illinois, and are closely related to the English wood pigeon but are far larger. Ruthlessly savage for their species, they will attack humans on sight.
The popular sport of "clay pigeon shooting" originated from the $5 reward per clay pigeon offered during the great Clay pigeon influx of 1898.

Interestingly, clay pigeons are the only bird species known to shatter.
