Wow! That IS a big pigeon! You're right, Traum! And it's not even skiddish. Man! I wish the birds around here would fly off when I try to get a closer look. I'm no Ornithologist, but everytime they fly it's like they thought I was a predator. I walk real slowly so as to not scare them off, but they see me and it Obviously doesn't help the situation. Heh. I never thought I was THAT scary, lol.
