It doesn't realise that Tom Lehrer is just off-stage with some 'tasty' morsels in his hand.
blackdog: When they see us coming, the birdies all try an' hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
This is great Mike- thought provoking and lonely. Poor little pigeon!
blackdog: Enough to melt the iciest of hearts ;o)

Nice urban study Mike: I doubt if Pigeons are ever lonely given their numbers
blackdog: Does the same apply to people as well then?
Nature must have produced an odd number of pigeons, how sad but it has to be someone. The lowliest comes across well.
blackdog: Probably enjoying having the park all to himself ;o)

Chad likes this so much he has commented twice.

There is a touch of pathos about this solitary pigeon Mike
blackdog: Pathos indeed - tugging at the heart strings...

So if Sunday you're free,
Why don't you come with me,
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park.
And maybe we'll do
In a squirrel or two,
While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

Tom Lehrer
I like the contrasting forms and treatment here.
blackdog: Thank you Fred - I always have an eye out for patterns of light.
Nice picture for a winged rat, as they call them here!
blackdog: My phrase too - they are really a blight in the city. I must dig out my Madrid pigeons!

so much to enjoy here - the soft shapes in the background contrasting with the sharp edges in front, the vertical and horizontal lines

oh and the poor lonely pideon too smile
blackdog: Thank you Paul - I couldn't pass by without taking this one. Suited my mood perfectly!
