The breed in the Stralsund zoo

The Stralsunder Highflier (German: Stralsunder Hochflieger) is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Stralsunder Highfliers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia).[1]

History

The breed emerged in Pomerania, where Stralsund is located, and was developed from the French Cumulet.[2]
