I like pigeons. This is a great article.

Francine In Retirement

Pigeons, you see them everywhere in Pittsburgh, other cities and around the world.  They are hard to get rid of and they eat everything.  Drop or throw them food and they will come from out of nowhere to devour it in minutes.  

Some say if they poop on you, you will have good luck.  I don’t know about that.  But I hope you take time to view the  21 amazing facts you didn’t know about them located here.
