I'd Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus*

So I was all excited yesterday because I looked out my studio's window...

...and it appeared that two pigeons were occupying a preexisting nest in the tree below! How fun! Just think: a bird's-eye view (sorry, couldn't resist) of little eggs hatching, tiny peeping chicks, the first clumsy attempts at flight...!

Back in New York, I used to dislike pigeons (the whole "flying rats" thing), but I have to say, parrot ownership has totally melted my heart toward all members of the bird family.

But there are no pigeons there today. Maybe they foreclosed on their mortgage, too?
