Racing pigeon sold at auction for $1.4 million

You might call him the Mike Trout of racing pigeons. A prized bird from Belgium just sold at auction for $1.4 million.

The bird, named "Armando," is said to be the best long-distance racing pigeon of all time.

He's also the most expensive bird ever sold at auction.

Armando sparked a bidding war, going from $600,000 to nearly $1.5 million in about an hour.
