If you live in the city, then surely You have seen lonely people who happen to feed pigeons. Or maybe they were just observing those feathery rats?
So far I hated urban pigeons. I treated them as a completely useless, flying generators of shit and noise. But for some people they can be a source of small, daily pleasure and make their lives a little less lonely.
Frankly, I still hate pigeons. Just a little bit less.
