Pigeon

Additional Links
Pigeons are mentioned as among the offerings which, by divine appointment, Abram presented unto the Lord (Genesis 15:9 ). They were afterwards enumerated among the sin-offerings (Leviticus 1:14; 12:6 ), and the law provided that those who could not offer a lamb might offer two young pigeons (5:7; Compare Luke 2:24 ). (See DOVE .)
