In the city, there's always someone watching - and it isn't necessarily a human. The pigeon flocks hang out where they are most likely to get food - and these guys are perched within 10 feet of a pizzeria.
They have a prime viewing spot for any crust or crumb droppage. They swoop down within seconds and start the fight for the biggest piece. Fortunately for this particular flock, they also have a bird friendly person looking out for them - and they get a nice amount of real bird food each day. They are certainly a lucky flock of pigeons.
That's what makes them such a nice little group, I think. They really seem to care for the people who walk by every day. They definitely know the person who feeds them - flying down when she comes, before the food is even out.
These guys are always looking out for me too...to see if I drop a crumb of food on the sidewalk.
