New Mormon Prophet is a Bird Guy

With the death of Gordon B. Hinckley, the apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will ordain a new church president this week. President Hinckley's successor will be Thomas S. Monson, who among other things is a long-time breeder of Birmingham Roller pigeons. According to this NY Times story, President Monson, was disappointed a few years ago when the Boy Scouts of America got rid of its pigeon raising merit badge.

Monson's son Clark is a biogeographer and conservation biologist who has studied Ospreys.
