During World War I, homing pigeons played a vital role in communications due to their innate ability to find their way home. However, one wayward bird, nicknamed “Wrong-Way Coogan,” proved his worth by constantly getting lost.

The ruse worked, and although the pigeon never returned, he is honored with a simple statue, appropriately facing the wrong way.
