Evil League of Pigeons

As I wander around downtown, I always look up, because some of the most interesting architectural details are to be found there. On my morning walk yesterday ( and hooray, I'm out and about again) I looked up at the Walnut Building and saw a flock of pigeons staring down at me with what I 'm sure was malevolent intent. Where's a Cooper's hawk when you need one? I retreated down Walnut Street, but not before I took a photo, like the brave photojournalist that I am.
What adventure did you have during your morning?

Pigeons have made a success out of architecture and a mess below. I think you captured that in your photo. Look out below. Or don't look up with your mouth open.

The other day someone told me they called pigeons "City Bird". I usually call them something I can't print on a blog. Glad you are feeling perky again.

Cool photo. Never trust a pigeon, you did right to retreat!

I think these scary pigeons have migrated form my post yesterday! It's supposed to be good luck if they crap on you. Surely the good luck is ig they don't! Great opportunity shot.

I think they are trying to find where to strike next.

Always go for the shot, because we cannot let them win! I suspect The Government is training them to zero in on photographers, just like they have those trained dolphins. Another reason to not get around to the whole underwater photography thing...

Every time I see birds lined up like that I can't help but think about the movie "The Birds".
