For the Birds
This three sided sign about the pigeons of Paris appeared somewhat inexplicably on the side of a busy Paris street recently, an area that doesn't appear to be particularly troubled by or lacking in pigeons. When I went hunting on-line to find out what the city of Paris might be up to, I did learn that campaign of pigeon contraception is being used citywide to keep the numbers down to a reasonable level which, at the moment, is about 80,000. The sign notes that pigeons are the rare sign of animal life in Paris; guess no one down at the Hôtel de Ville has ever seen a rat, well except maybe on the big screen.
