About Us

Pigeons have been a part of my life since the family moved  from Flatbush, N.Y. East to Central Islip, N.Y. in 1956. It wasn’t long after that, my father,who was a rooftop flyer in Brooklyn acquired
himself a colony of flying Flights and Tipplers. As kids, my brothers and I were always involved with dad’s birds. In 1978 he passed away and I was the last to remain home and subsequently now had 100 pigeons of my own to manage. By now he also had Homers. That’s when things for me changed.

I sold off the Flights and Tipplers and became a ‘Homer’ flyer. As luck would have it, I met some great local flyers who sold and gave me birds. Most notably Hyuskin-Van Riel’s pigeons from a close friend of Dr. Leon F. Whitney, my new friend and ‘mentor’ from the power company, Manuel Ribo. He had an extensive colony of HVR’s and Jan Aarts pigeons when I met him. Eventually I was asked to care for them and was offered complete use of the entire colony. I had by then taken a liking to the family of ‘Huskins’ and was hooked. I still have an entire loft of this families offspring.

I was also befriended by two highly successful and well known flyers. The Mongolucci brothers of Prudential I&II lofts. Together with Patty Rayano of Joyland loft and  their combined families of ‘Sions’ I started my racing. Together the family has won all you could in pigeon racing. We still have these two families and couldn’t be happier. I have acquired birds through the years as additional families. I have always maintained a colony which I breed straight. We’ve added Janssen bros. to ‘round’ out our birds ability to keep up with the new and exciting prospects as the sport of racing pigeons evolves. Today, we still search for the best there is in the sport.
