Among the symbols of Bursa and known around the world as the ‘’Bursa Roller’’, the ‘’Bursa Pigeon’’ was race that was bred during the Ottoman Empire era and it is one of the rich and bright feathered birds in the world. Due to its ability to fly 7 hours, Bursa Pigeons are known as flight athletes and because of these abilities they were used for communication during the Ottoman Empire period. These birds would fly all the way to Kosovo and Albania. But their ability to fly 7-8 hours has been lost today and they can only fly 3 hours the most. They can do scissors. These Bursa birds are rollers/tumblers. The one that tumbles, would separate from the group, did 10 somersaults and dived towards the ground and rose back up and joined the group again, then the other group members followed. This created a very beautiful image. However, this special ability of the bird too has been eliminated by the breeders.
