I don’t really mind them so much, but I have a friend who hates them. When she’s walking down the sidewalk, she will pick up her pace and try to kick them. She thinks they’re dirty birds. Hell, they’re just pigeons.
I hope my friend never visits Seattle. They have really big ones up there. I saw some pigeons the size of Buicks.
Sometimes a pigeon will go crazy. A couple summers ago while walking downtown, one got in front of me somehow, must have panicked and flew up in my face – hitting me in the eye with one of it’s wings. I didn’t enjoy that so much.
While at the bus stop last week, two teenage girls were there eating donuts. A couple pigeons were around and one of the girls started throwing pieces of the donut down on the sidewalk. She was having fun watching the pigeons eat.
Before you know it, 10 to 12 other pigeons fly down to join in on the feast. The teenage girls ran away, scared to death.
When it comes to food, those pigeons must have radar or something.
