With carrier pigeon 1.0, the beak is so small you have to
dis-assemble/re-assemble the IP packets.

Carrier pigeon 2.0 has a bigger beak and can hold a full packet.

Unfortunately the evolutionary process is goin slow.  Maybe within a
couple of millenium.

Have you thought about using IP-over-turkey instead?  

It is slower and not very sexy, but with the bigger beak, you can get
better bandwidth.
