I took this photo because of those two scruffy birds. Yes, they're pigeons. Common, everyday pigeons. When I was a lad (oh, here we go...) no, wait a minute. When I was young, it seemed that every house had pigeons on the roof. There were pigeons in the street, pigeons eating breadcrumbs on the sidewalk, pigeons everywhere. But as an adult (who, me?) I don't see many of these birds. In fact, I see more hawks here at my house than I see pigeons. Apparently, whatever it is that eats pigeons has multiplied. It's probably hawks.
