    I like this idea, since Minecraft tries to keep things sort of medieval. but maybe you have to tame the pigeon first?

    I was just about to post something like this! I thought that they should be tamed and then you could send a note (unfinished book & quill) to another specified player without anyone else seeing it unless it died and they caught the book and quill item.

    I think you should be able to do this with parrots.

    Yes they should add this. But pigeons need to be trained to come home. So you could set your house for example as the return point for your pigeon by feeding it wheat seeds to set it's return point. You could maybe also let it carry small items back home for you like a diamond, emerald or nether star.

    Pigeons should be able to carry any item, that way they still are useful if you're not playing multiplayer.  Maybe they could bring an item to certain coordinates, or drop it in a chest on a map?

    They could even use the goat horn as a call for the bird
