This is a ringed homing pigeon which was registered in the Federación Colombófila Argentina in 2013.
Homing pigeons are characterized by their sense of orientation, fatigue resistence and flight speed. These skilful flying postmen have been the current mail system till the first communication technologies appeared on the scene. They carried messages attached to their legs. Nowadays pigeon keeping, which is the art and science of breeding domestic pigeons, is basically a sports activity.
