Cowart's Common Room
DOVE BITE - London pigeons

After tea at The Ritz for my birthday yesterday, we wandered into Green Park. It was sunny and people were lying about on the grass, or in deck chairs. There were quite a few pigeons which was not surprising as a good place for them to scrounge a meal near the little cafe kiosk - and if a lady happens to drop a bit of the scone that she happened to bring out uneaten from The Ritz, then all to the good - although of course that lady knows that it is forbidden to feed London pigeons! The poor things, they didn't look in as good condition as my housed and fed birds. But very full of spirit and character, like all pidgies.

And underneath this statue there is a lovely fountain for the birds to get a drink.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar You always take beautiful pictures, Faith, but I don't recognise the statue, or the building behind. When I came out of the cinema yesterday I counted 28 pigeons on the building opposite and it was a dolls house compared to the one you have here. And I think you could have a little competition to get people choosing words for your litter bin pigeons to say to each other. Now, why are town pigeons so dark? The first litter bin pigeon is almost black.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar The litter bin Pigeons sounds like a children's cartoon show. Laughing
Tea at the Ritz sounds like a lovely birthday treat Faith.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Great pics Faith, I am sure those Pigeons would have loved to have come back home with you and to tuck into more food too.

I don't recognise the statue either Faith is it taken on The Strand?

Re:
Faith's Avatar The pigeons in the photos just happen to be dark Fennie - there were sandy ones around that day and all colours too.

Camilla the statue is in Green Park where I took the pigeon photos. I will put up a link in a separate post.
