I don't care what anyone says. Pigeons do care about what they eat. Today I went to visit the ferals. Someone had left a nice amount of corn for them. The pigeons weren't even interested. Instead they were looking around to where I usually visit them, hunting for something. As soon as they saw me, they all flew over - Garye, Bronson, and all. I give them a mixture of different seeds and I guess they like it a lot. They passed up bread and that corn that was left for them to race over to me.
So even though it's rumored they only have 37 taste buds, those taste buds do like certain things more than others.
