have you ever seen a dead pigeon?

“All I know of birds to this date is that sparrows are the ones that are not pigeons.”

definitely not sleeping

So there it was, lying in the back garden – and definitely dead as the numerous flies were testifying. I was slightly shocked; I can’t remember having seen a dead pigeon before. My initial thought was “Does this go in the green or the brown bin?”

Then I got to thinking – you don’t see dead pigeons. They obviously don’t live forever as the deceased bird proves. I can only imagine the undersides of Glasgow’s railway bridges must be concealing thousands of decaying pigeon carcasses.

And another thing – it was light as a feather – literally!
