When I was a girl, I read a book that I thought was titled, The Bird Game.  I can't locate the book now that I am grown, so perhaps I have the wrong title or perhaps it was a movie... The book/movie was 

about people who lived in the city and kept pigeons in coups on their rooftops.  At a certain time each day they would all release their birds and allow them to fly together.  The object

 was to "capture" other peoples' pigeons when they all came back to roost in the evening.  I thought it was called The Bird Game.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Maybe The London Pigeon Wars by Patrick Neate?
