    Hey, walking to work just now I spotted a pigeon crouching on the ground in the shadow of a building pillar. Looks like he's been there awhile, lots of yellow poop in the area.

It seemed to be able to fly just fine, causing me to think that it wasn't something caught or entangled on its wing, but I'm not totally sure. Does anyone know...
