FOR THOSE WHO LIVE DANGEROUSLY
I LOVE THE PIGEONS!!!
Tom Lehrer wrote a song about pigeons in the park. It's not for the faint of heart.My Mom, and many others, colloquially call them "winged rats." I think that's unfair, both to the pigeons and the rats.Robert in San Diego, thinks pet rats are cool.
Oh, one more thing: Ever seen a postally used pigeongram?[Link goes to wikipedia article.] Even more pigeons-doing-work trivia. Back in the 1880's when the high society of Los Angeles would retreat to Catalina Island for the summer, pigeons would carry the "society news" back to the mainland -- and the birds got a portion of the byline!Robert in San Diego, off to photograph pelicans.
I rather like those drawings.Swans are pretty, but rather rude. Geese are funny, but also rude. And very straightforward about it. I like ostriches and toucans. And hummingbirds. But I am SO gonna put up pictures of those pigeons up in my room...it'll match purrfectly with my wall.......
*As long as they don't poop on me.*
Pigeons! <3 Even though I prefer sparrows and owls
