Rats with wings, or majestic streetwise bird?
No one one’s quite sure of how many pigeons are in New York City. One adage is “one pigeon per person,” which would put their numbers at about 7 million. Pigeons love cities because of the many ledges, windowsills, eaves and rooftops available for them to roost in, which mimics their natural habitat of high cliffs. This Pigeon was captured in it’s most Zen state…just calmly strolling along a ledge in Bryant Park. (via Gothamist)
